Final-Year JHS & SHS Students In Trouble With This GES Directive

Spread the love

Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) attention has been drawn to the fact that some Junior and Senior High School form three (JHS3 and SHS 3) students consistently refuse to attend school and classes after registering for their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).


The Ghana Education Service (GES) has issued a circular to all regional directors of education to report any criminal acts by final-year students in junior and senior high schools for police investigations and subsequent prosecution.


According to the Service, there is a rising tendency of truancy among students after registering for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) and West African Secondary Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).

The candidates are said to consistently refuse to attend classes while some of them engage in “undesirable” acts such as drugs ingestion, bullying, wearing of unprescribed attires, use of mobile phones and blatant disregard for school rules and regulations.


“This is an act the GES considers a major misconduct by students,” the GES said in the circular issued by Directir-General Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwaa on Thursday, June 9.


It indicated that sanctions such as deboardinisation, writing exams under police/parent escort and dismissal from exams hall to write the papers should be meted out to the defaulting students.

The GES has cautioned such students and parents that the following sanctions can be applied:

1. Deboardinization

2. Writing the examination under Police/Parent escort.

3. West African Examination Council (WAEC) not admitting them to the examination centre to write the papers.

Management of GES has, therefore, urged school authorities to report any criminal acts of students to the Ghana Police Service (GPS) for investigations and subsequent prosecution.

It said students under Police investigation during the period of BECE and WASSCE Examinations will be allowed to write their papers under police escort while students with disciplinary issues in the school can only come to the Examination Centres accompanied by their parent.
