Takoradi, April 17, GNA – This year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) on Monday took off smoothly within the Sekondi/Takoradi Metropolis with only three cases of pregnancies and two deaths.

At the Ghana Secondary Technical School, which had three centres with 889 candidates, one person was absent.

The Supervisor, B Y Anumo, told the GNA that materials arrived early. The GNA also visited Naval Base, Bompeh Secondary where another death was recorded Archbishoporter Girls Secondary, Takoradi Senior High, Bethel Methodist and Takoradi Technical Institute.

Nana Kofi Imbeah, the Metropolitan Director of Education, told the GNA that most of the absentees at some centres were boys who had travelled abroad with their parents.

The GNA noticed at the Archbishoporter Girls School that a psycho-motor candidate was being given  special attention whiles a twisted hands candidate at the Ahantaman Senior High was also being allotted extra time.

Mr. Alorka Gershon, Special Education Officer at the Metropolitan Education Office, called on parents to inform school authorities about children with such special needs so they could be assisted.

Joseph Boateng, a candidate from the Chapel Hill School, said due to several mock examinations they had  he overcame his fears and did his best.
