When asked if everything was smooth because the BNI delivered the papers to the centres, he answered, “I am sure it was because of what WAEC did on television. The supervisors and invigilators have been very cautious of the directives received from WAEC”.
He further stated that 8 government schools wrote in the centre. Some of the schools were Kanda 1 and 5 JHS, Kanda AMA, Ringroad East and Nima 1 and 2 JHS.

Erica Mensah also a fresh graduate of Mrs. Edu Sam’s New Nations’ School expressed her sentiments about the exam. “It was cool but at some point, it was confusing as to what will happen after the entire examination. One of the invigilators got angry about our lateness. She shouted at us. However, she later apologised and explained that her work demands that she disciplines us,” she said.
