Obuasi MCE interacts with students ahead of 2023 BECE

The Chief Executive for Obuasi Municipal, Elijah Adansi-Bonah, on Monday, August 7 toured the three examination centers designated for the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE).

The tour was for the MCE and the Education Directorate to motivate the students ahead of the examinations and to also have first hand information on how the exams would be conducted.

The MCE and his entourage toured Obuasi Senior High Technical School, AngloGold Ashanti School and the Obuasi Cluster of Schools examinations centers.

Interacting with the media after the tour, MCE Adansi-Bonah expressed satisfaction with how the examinations have been conducted, the security detail on the day and the general mood of the students.

He said the students were adequately prepared for the exams through the effective collaboration between the Assembly and the Education Directorate.

“We have collaborated with the education directorate to prepare the students for this exams through series of mock exams. I am optimistic that the efforts put in place will translate into good results by the students.”

He said Obuasi has a longstanding history of excelling in BECE, a feat the MCE intimated to stakeholders in the Municipality will not drop as they will ensure that such enviable academic achievements were maintained.

On security, Mr Adansi-Bonah, who is the Chairman of the Municipal Security Council, said stringent measures have been put in place to forestall the incidence of violence during and after the examinations.

“Post-examinations violence are becoming rampant these days but the security personnel have been readied to prevent any group or schools from attacking the other.”

The Municipal Education Director, George Alfred Koomson, after his motivational speech to the students before the commencement of the exams, told the media that he was impressed with attendance on the day.

He revealed that his excitement stems from the fact that no female absentee was recorded on the first day of the exams.

He gave assurance that the students had been adequately prepared for the exams, stressing that seasoned examiners were engaged to orient the candidates on the dos and don’ts of the Exams.

Again, he said the schools also conducted between 3-4 mock exams to adequately prepare them for the BECE.

About 2,519 candidates made up of 1,221 boys and 1,298 were registered for this year’s BECE in 3 designated centers in the Obuasi Municipality.
