As part of its exams practice sanitisation crusade, two executives of Exams Ethics International on Friday took students of Ho Mawuli School through a 30-minute talk on the dos and don’ts of examinations.
Lead Speaker Kofi Ashiboe-Mensah, Country Director of Exams Ethics International Ghana, said the crusade was aimed at restoring the integrity of certificates awarded locally.
He said there was the need for behavioural change to end cheating during exams.
Mr Ashiboe-Mensah said preparations for final exams must begin from the very day the course commenced.
“Study regularly for a few minutes along the way rather than wait to cram for hours when exams approached,” he told the students.
Mr Evaristus Tepprey, Assistant Headmaster, Welfare, said exams everywhere on earth were an important way of evaluation, which could make or unmake a person.
He said Exams Ethics Clubs would soon be formed in the school.
Emmanuel Azamela, Form Two student told the Ghana News Agency that cheating in exams was a reality, recalling how invigilators looked the other way while students taught each other during the Basic Education Certificate Examination some two years ago.
Solomon Egyiri Form Three student lauded the initiative, which he said would give better credibility to certificates in Ghana.
The Exams Ethics Ghana team was also at Mawuko Girls Senior High School in Ho and the Ho Polytechnic with the same message.
