The Member of Parliament (MP) for La Dadekotopon in the Greater Accra Region, Ms Rita Odoley Sowah, has advised candidates writing the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) to stay focused.

She said this when she visited some of the exam centers to acquaint herself with the process and to motivate the candidates.

Interaction

The MP, who was accompanied by the La Dadekotopon Municipal Director of Education, Madam Habiba Kotomah, interacted with school authorities and commended the teachers for preparing the students for the examination.

She visited three out of the four centres in the constituency, encouraging the students to aim for success and focus on their dreams.

The schools visited included the La Presbyterian, Labone and the St Thomas Aquinas Senior High Schools (SHSs).

Ms Sowah, in her address to the students, challenged them to excel in their examination.

She encouraged them to make the most out of the time.

According to her, it was not too late for those who had not prepared adequately to study for the examination.

"Even if you have just a day more, it is enough time to assess yourselves and adjust accordingly," she told the candidates.

Confidence

At the St Thomas Aquinas SHS, the students expressed confidence that they would come out with flying colours.

The head prefect, Master Ronald Antwi, who interacted with the MP, expressed appreciation for her visit, describing it as a morale booster.

For her part, Madam Kotomah urged the students to abide by the rules and regulations governing the examination.

She tasked them to put the knowledge they had acquired in the last three years into practice and make their parents, guardians and teachers proud.
