KNUST: SRC Finally Clarifies Date Of End Of Semester Examinations

The KNUST Student Representative Council has rubbished claims of a change in date for the upcoming end-of-semester examination.

Their response came at the back of some media publications and speculations claiming there has been a change in date for the end of semester exams.

Some of the reported dates suggested that the exams will be held on April 5 instead of the stipulated April 12.

All of those rumors have been debunked by the SRC in a tweet.

“To avoid confusion, there has been no change in the start date of the end of first semester exams. The end-of-semester examinations for the 2020/21 academic year will begin on April 12, 2021. Clinical students, on the other hand, will begin theirs a week earlier, as is customary,” the tweet stated.

Full Investigations Into How 2020 WASSCE Papers Got Leaked

Full Investigations Into How 2020 WASSCE Papers Got Leaked
According to investigations conducted by Education Think Tank and Africa Education Watch, question papers for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) were leaked to candidates. According to Kofi Asare, Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, these question papers were sent from the West African Examinations Council’s (WAEC) IT department to other online platforms and then forwarded to his organization by a member of the platform. He stated that a day after his organization informed WAEC that the papers were leaked directly from their headquarters, WAEC stated that it had begun an investigation into the matter. However, WAEC has failed to brief Africa Education Watch on the outcome of the investigations. “WAEC confirmed the day after we blew the cover that indeed it had leaked from their headquarters and that they had instituted an internal inquiry. 10 months after the leakage, no one has informed us about the outcome of such an inquiry and whether it happened at all. “But it leaked from the WAEC’s own IT department and it leaked unto a platform which was eventually forwarded to our assessment team by a member of that particular platform,” he added. Speaking to JoyNews‘ Evans Mensah on NewsNite, Wednesday, Mr Asare alleged that the leaked information contained the names, email addresses, telephone numbers of examiners. “But WAEC immediately after the leakage held a press conference, met the media and assured them that particular list was a provisional list and that they had about 20,000 markers or examiners and so the 1,520 could not have… only to turn around and use the same 1,520 examiners to mark the papers. “If you go to the UK’s regulator, which is the office of qualification assessment. Their standards include among others a non-disclosure of the contact details of external examiners and markers so that particular action by WAEC fell short of WAEC’s own standard,” he added. The Executive Director at Africa Education Watch noted that during a discussion concerning the report conducted by his outfit, the Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Adutwum stated that the government is committed to reform the assessment sector and make it more credible, hence prevent such from occurring in the future.
