BECE candidate writes exams with her six week old baby

BECE candidate takes six week baby to examination centre

A female candidate of the on-going Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), has defied all odds as she took her six-week-old baby along to write the examination which began nationwide on Monday.

The candidate (name withheld) a student of one of the Junior High School in the Sekyere-Central District of Ashanti, was among the 1,144 candidates who registered to take part in this year’s BECE in the District but got pregnant afterwards.

According to the report sighted on Adomonline, the young lady undeterred to write the examination was helped by her grandmother who accompanied her to the Kwamang SHS examination centre to provide care as she wrote the papers.

The grandmother was spotted loitering around the centre with her six-week-old grandchild strapped on her back. Three pregnant female candidates were also seen writing the examination.
