Some Stakeholders are the Culprits of Exam Malpractices- Nana Osei Bonsu


An educationist, Nana Osei Bonsu, has expressed his views and thoughts on exam malpractices every year on the major West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams.

According to him, stakeholders and school leaders should also be blamed for examination malpractices.

During an interview with Sika Audrey Dzifa on Focus FM’s Teknokrat show on Tuesday, December 19th, 2023, Osei Bonsu said stakeholders, which include teachers and headmasters, are also allies and culprits in exam malpractices.

He continued that it is obvious to detect AI-generated answers, and it does not surprise him that examiners were able to detect them.

“Feedback from AI is to be interpreted in the candidate’s language and not exactly as provided by AI,” he said.

The educationist added that “candidates engage in exam malpractices because there is too much focus on exams and pressure on students that it is all about chewing, pouring, and forgetting.”.

Nana Osei Bonsu said that, despite everything, there has been improvement in the educational system throughout the years.

The provisional results of candidates who took the 2023 WASSCE were made public on December 18, 2023, by WAEC.
