Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates in the North Tongu District of the Volta Region have been instructed not to wear shoes or belts during their exams.

The directive issued by officers from the Ghana Education Service (GES) is to curb examination malpractice.

The students were however permitted to wear sandals.

At one of the designated examination centers, St. Kizito Senior High School, GES officials stressed the importance of strictly adhering to this policy.

They explained that, banning shoes and belts is a preventive measure to uphold the integrity of the examination process by reducing opportunities for cheating.
