Zipline to deliver exam papers via drones to BECE candidates in Sekyere Afram Plains

Education authorities in Sekyere Afram Plains in the Ashanti Region have turned to drone technology to transport examination papers for students taking this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). This decision comes in response to the West African Examination Council (WAEC) being unable to deliver materials to students in the region due to the overflow of the Sene River.

Prince Owusu Ansah, the Director of Education in the Sekyere Afram Plains District, has stated that drones will be utilized throughout the entire examination period to facilitate the delivery of exam papers.

“Throughout the week, we will be writing the exams, and the drones will be dropping the questions for the candidates to write. And we are going to keep them at the Anyinam police station under tight security. At the end of the examination on Friday, we are praying that the road will be better, the water would have subsided, and we will carry all the scripts by road to the depot at Mampong,” Mr. Ansah said.
