The Ghana Education Service (GES) has reviewed its sanctions for some 13 SHS students who were dismissed on the grounds of various acts of misconduct in the ongoing WASSCE.
This was after a meeting between the Education Ministry and GES.
The said students have been cleared to take their final examination conducted by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the GES, Cassandra Twum Ampofo disclosed that the engagement between her outfit and the Education Minister arrived at a decision to allow the candidates proceed with the rest of the papers.
“We have decided that they go back to school to write their exams. And so we have directed that the heads of institutions should allow them to come to the school to write their paper,” she said on Monday.
She explained that the said students are to go to the examination centres under the strict supervision of their guardians.
“So they will not go to school to write the paper alone. They will have their parents, relative or guardian escort them and then they will leave the campus immediately they finish the paper,” the PRO added.
She was, however, quick to add that all other sanctions remain in place as recommended by the letter from the Jubilee House.
This includes the surcharge for damage to property on campus and dismissal from their respective schools.
President Akufo-Addo on August 9 directed Education Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh to engage the GES to reconsider its decision to ban some SHS students from writing the rest of the papers.
