The Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has cautioned students at the Senior High School level against all forms of examination malpractices.
He said cheating would lead to the cancellation of their results and possibly truncate their education to ruin their future.
Dr Adutwum advised the students during a visit to some schools in the Ashanti Region.
The Education Minister in recent times has embarked on unannounced visits to some schools within the country to check on what they are doing at a particular time.
The visits in Ashanti Region has already taken the Education Minister to Juaben SHS, Kweneboa Koduah SHS in Kumawu, Mansoman Senior High in Amansie West District, Jachiepramso SHS and others.
Dr Yaw Adutwum stated, “Examination malpractices has caused great havoc to many people who have regretted in life, but they cannot change the hands of time”.
He encouraged the students writing the examination this year to be confident, write and pass well to enable them to further their education to the tertiary level.
He also reminded them of government’s huge investment in them through the Free Senior High School (FSHS) programme and TVET since the surest way they could justify the government’s investment is for them to pass the examination.
“You are the future leaders who will hold responsible positions and that is why your parents and the government have invested much in your education.
“I am therefore begging you to do your best and pass the examination well but we will be disappointed if you fail us,” he told the candidates.
