The Executive Director of Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare, has raised concerns about the Ministry of Education’s decision to introduce an entrance exam in Math and English for free Senior High School graduates with credit passes in these subjects in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
”If fSHS has improved quality, why introduce entrance exam in Math & Eng for fSHS graduates who already have Credit Passes in WASSCE Math & Eng, seeking to enter tertiary Colleges of Educ? Don’t we trust the same WASSCE we used to rate fSHS?” Kofi Asare.
Entrance exams exist at the law school and existed as an entrance to universities , CoE etc so there is nothing wrong with Government re-introducing it.
Kofi Asare Believes its a normal Practice when standards in SHS are falling, but in this case no one has said the standards are falling, hence Mr. Asare’s question.
Others also believe It’s just a deliberate barrier to control numbers going into the colleges.
