The Mfantseman Municipal Education Directorate has justified the action by an invigilator that led to a BECE candidate defecating on herself in the exam hall.
According to the Municipal Education Director, Mr Cobbod, the invigilator was only applying the GES rules and regulations.
Speaking in an interview with EIB Network’s Central Regional Correspondent, Yaw Boagyan, the Director said, it is against the WAEC rules to allow Candidates to go out of the examination hall less than 30 minutes after a paper has started.
Mr Cobbod added that the invigilator assumed that the student was faking her situation hence his decision to prevent her from stepping out leading to the unfortunate incident. He clarified that students can go out 30 minutes after a paper has started.
Mr Cobbod revealed that a delegation from the Education Directorate together with the invigilator will visit the Parents of the victim and render an apology.
