2015 WASSCE Candidates Crying – Dumsor Will Affect Our Performance

Candidates sitting for the 2015 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in the Ashanti region have begun casting doubts over their performance with some planning to register for the private WASSCE as an alternative.

Most of the candidates are unhappy because their preparation towards the examination was inadequate due to the current erratic power supply.

A total of 268771 candidates are sitting for the 2015 WASSCE across Senior High Schools in the country.

The Ashanti region has the highest number with 62,472 candidates as against the Upper region which is the lowest with 7060 candidates sitting for the exams.

The examinations which will last for one month come at a time when the country is confronted with incessant erratic power supply now referred to as ‘Dumsor’.

A visit to schools such as the Kumasi Girls, Adventist, Asanteman and the Islamic Senior High Schools all in the Ashanti region revealed that most of the candidates were present and a few number of them absent.

I am an ardent reader and love to learn anything from archaeology to zoology, you can call me "Jack of all trades, master of all".

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at GhanaNation.com. I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.

Anybody I've come in contact with, admonishes me to be a relationship therapist, so who knows? Maybe that is what the future holds for me...
