34 prison inmates sit for BECE nationwide

The Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is being taken this year by thirty-four inmates.

The BECE, which takes place every year in Ghana’s educational system, signifies the country’s move from junior high schools to senior high schools and technical institutions.

All of the candidates are male and come from three different prisons: Sunyani Central Prison, Nsawam Maximum Security Prison, and 27 juvenile offenders from the Senior Correctional Centre (SCC).

DSP Loretta Valentina Amoah, the Greater Accra Regional Public Relations Officer, stated in an interview that the prisoners have received extensive preparation from the Ghana Education Service as well as from certified, experienced teachers in the service.

She had high hopes that the prisoners would excel in every subject and graduate with honors.

She called on the public to support the prisoners, particularly the young ones, by donating resources like textbooks and practice exams to help them succeed in school and have fun while learning.
