The West African Examination Council (W.A.E.C) seems to have released the results on time year. Kudos for their effort. The only glitch however was that their website seemed to jam up immediately they announced the release of the result. For almost two days, candidates could not check on their results, however, they rectified the situation on time.
By now, The Computerized School Placement Secretariat would have obtained the result from WAEC, Placement of Candidates into their various Secondary Schools would be announced latest by the second week in August. I am only praying that the kind of confusion that was generated last year does not repeat itself this time around. Where candidates who checked via the mobile phone got the school they chose only for them to go and print the information on the internet and realize that they had been placed in a different school altogether.
Another issue bothering me is the advantage pupils in the public school have over those in the private school. The recent order of the President to the Secretariat that students living in the community where the secondary school is located should be given 30% slot provides plenty room for headmasters and headmistress to abuse.
Cape Coast alone boast of about 6-7 good secondary schools, that is their natural resources. Western region now has oil. They demanded for 10% of the revenue, was it given? I believe all Ghanians deserve equal opportunities into these schools. If you deserve it, fight for it.
Ayeekoo however goes to honourable form three graduands who just completed. To get 22 aggregate 06, 1 aggregate 07 and 1 aggregate 08 is not a fluke. They have done extremely well. I am planning of a mega party for you after the graduation. You have made me proud for the record you have set.
Below is th details of their results for the nine subjects they wrote.
9 Students had 9 ones Agg 06
8 Students had 8 ones Agg 06
5 Students had 7 ones Agg 06
1 Student had 5 ones Agg 07
1 Student had 4 ones Agg 08
Once again, Ayeekoo Class of 2011.
