GES condemns ‘all die be die’ mock questions

Leave a comment

The Ghana Education Service (GES) has condemned education heads at Pusiga in the Upper East Region, for allowing a mock examination question which told students that the Presidential Candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, is also known as “all die be die.”  A picture of the controversial political question in an English Mock paper, meant to prepare students for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) went viral last week. Describing the question as substandard, the Public Relations Officer of GES, Reverend Jonathan Bettey, told Citi News education authorities in the area should have been circumspect in setting the questions.  “It has come to the limelight that the schools in that district were writing a mock and that question came which is related to the flagbearer of the NPP, Nana Akufo Addo being nicknamed as ‘all die be die.’ Ghana Education Service has a standard in setting questions and for that matter WAEC that supervises our examination also has a standard.” He said “I don’t think and believe that WAEC will set such questions for our candidates to answer in BECE.”  While condemning the questions set for the mock exams, Mr. Bettey said “we will not encourage anybody to set political questions.” “…We have condemned it and we have decided that we will speak to the district director and the headmaster of that school because as part of our routine practice, anytime a question of that nature for mock exams are set, we expect the headmaster to go through the questions to make sure they are standard before the children write,” he added.
