The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Ahafo Ano South-East, Mr Thomas Owusu Ansah has advised Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates to do their best to pass since it could be lifetime opportunity.
He stated that, much of the success in the lives of students would depend on the outcome of BECE examination, and urged them not to mess up with prevailing opportunity.
Mr Owusu Ansah made the advice in his goodwill address at the assembly of BECE candidates at examination centres in Adugyama, Sabronum and Pokukrom to mark the start of examination on Monday November 15, 2021.
A total of 571,894 candidates would sit for BECE examination across the Country.
Mr Owusu Ansah was accompanied by Mr Kaleem Abdallah Adam, District Coordinating Director, Mr Humid Kramo, District Director of Education, Ms Joyce Fosuaa , District Head of Examination Supervision and Mr Thomas Awuah Asem, District Information Officer.
He promised to support students who would pass the examination with distinction.
” As you are aware, Senior High School (SHS) is free, however, I’m ready to provide every student who will pass between aggregate 6 and aggregate 9 with all the items that would make his or her stay in SHS possible.
I will personally drive that student to his or her school and be a personal friend” the DCE promised.
He therefore admonished candidates to concentrate on their books so that they could come out with flying colours in the examination.

Out of the total, one candidate had been reported death.
