The Foundation for Generational Thinkers (FOGET) in partnership with Ghana National Association of Private Schools (GNAPS) Greater Accra Zone '5' has organized a summit to prepare the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates ahead of Monday.

The summit titled "PASSCODE 2018" had about 50 schools attending, and with about 1000 candidates all drown from Mamprobi and its environs.

Mr. Anthony Kofitse, former Head of Test Development Division- West Africa Examination Council (WAEC), addressing the candidates recently, urged them to adhere to strict standards and rules to avoid cancellation of their exams.
According to him, the candidates need to critically read and understand demands of exams questions before they attempt, since Chief Examiner's report has revealed that candidates every year commit minor errors, which lead to yearly massive failures.
He advised the candidates to pay rap attention to these keywords:"list, explain, stand, examine, illustrate, describe, analysis, narrate among others".

Mr. Kofitse further encouraged the candidates to report to the examination centres on time in order to avoid any incidents of lateness; adding "come prepared, so that nothing affects the performance of exams."

The retired head of the test Division also took them through how marks are allotted to questions, examination conduct and how to plan their essay.

On his part, the president and founder of FOGET, Prosper Dan Afetsi touching on career and examination excellence for the BECE candidates, advised them that there is still a life after the BECE.
He said the BECE was just a step of the long academic ladder and that there was more life after the examination.
Per his observation, students tend to destroy school properties all in the name of they have completed school.
This, he said: "Remember those facilities that you enjoyed during your stay in the school were used by others before you and would be used by others after you. As a generational thinker you don't create problems for others to solve."

Mr. Joseph Neequaye, Chair of Greater Accra GNAPS Zone '5' also placed emphasis on the Chief Examiner's report, urging the candidates to shun all feelings of fear and anxiety and should put into use their examination experiences.
Since the strength of GNAPS is driven by the performance of their students, therefore, he encouraged and wished them good luck.
