WAEC Says 617 Students from Ashanti Region Wrote ‘I Don’t Think Far’ As Answers to Some BECE Questions
The extremes Ghanaians take their joking tendencies to has a way of shocking even Kevin Hart.
The West African Examination council is not only awestruck by what the recent Junior High School graduates have done but they are in a fist of fury with their sanity on how such a thing happened in the first place.
“After going through all these troubles—the printing of questions papers outside the country, the flying of papers by helicopters to respective exams centers and the invigilation by the BNI to ensure leakage free exams only for students to answer questions in such a ridiculous manner” WAEC deputy director of public affairs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe told Adom Fm.
“I don’t think far” is a phrase that has been looming in almost every corner of the country. It is an eyesore when you get to social media. It is often said to rubbish a conversation—once it is mentioned, any iota of seriousness attached to a conversation just wither away.
How can you simply answer a question with “ I don’t think far”— you have been given a mathematics question to solve and you shamelessly tell me you cannot think far. How silly could you be?Agnes Teye-Cudjoe fumed.
“Do you not know it is your future you are seemingly joking with like that. The biggest slap is the fact that some of the students were either spelling the the words wrong or writing the phrase in shorthand,” she added.
Miss Agnes revealed that though this has made it easier for the examiners with respect to the marking, it is a serious issue which need to be dealt with immediately.
To end the interview, the bomb ticking Agnes said WAEC would certainly not think far when it is time for the grading.
