The Minority in Parliament has joined calls for the sanction of students who have engaged in acts of indiscipline since the beginning of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

According to the ranking member on the Education Committee of Parliament, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, the incidents should be blamed on both institutional failure and students’ desire to cheat in examinations.

“It is both institutional failure and the desire of students to cheat in examinations. This has never happened in the history of the conduct of the West Africa Examination Council at the Senior High Level, it’s very unfortunate and it must be condemned, it’s very offensive as well,” he said.

Peter Nortsu explained that students have no business rioting because the questions they expected to see in their exams did not appear.

“The issue is that as students, you must prepare for your examination because you have been taken through three years of learning and you should expect questions to come from any of the years that you have gone through so the reliance on a compiled past questions booklet for your examination is unimaginable…they must be held responsible for this acts of indiscipline,” he added.
