The University of Cape Coast has denied media reports that the questions for the University’s Department of Forensic Sciences’ Ghana Police Promotional Examination were leaked before the exams.
No part of the Ghana Police Promotional examination questions written on the 13th of February, 2023, were leaked to any candidate,” the management of UCC said in a statement on Tuesday, February 28.
The University administration also denied claims that the exams were overseen by senior officers from the police force. The Examinations, according to UCC management, were written under the strict supervision of the University’s experienced Invigilators.
On Wednesday, February 22, 2023, ADOM TV’s Badwam show report suggested the leakage of the Ghana Police Promotional Examination conducted by UCC.
In response to the media reports, the University stated, “A careful analysis of the material exhibited shows some inconsistencies in comparison with the test item that was administered to the candidates during the exams.”
“The purported material being shown around as a leaked paper has no question attached to it. Again, it is strange to note that the material in question appeared two days after the examination. How could this constitute a leaked question?” the statement queried.
Authorities thus pleaded with stakeholders and the general public to disregard the malicious publication, claiming that it would not do anything to harm its hard-earned reputation.
