An Appeals Court Judge, Sir Justice Dennis Adjei, has called for the university authorities to act firmly to stop examination malpractices in all forms.

This, he said, was necessary because examination leakage and other misconduct, particularly in higher institutions of learning undermined the integrity of the nation’s educational system and the certificates given to the graduating students.

Sir Justice Adjei, addressing a students’ entrepreneurship clinic at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, said everything must be done to protect the sanctity of Ghana’s educational system.

“Rewarding academic excellence for higher purposes”, was the theme chosen for the clinic, which targeted final year students.

It formed part of the effort by the university to build the entrepreneurial skills of students and encourage them to take bold decisions to set up their own businesses.

Sir Justice Adjei, who is the Chairman of the United Nations Environmental Law Programme for Judicial Educators in Africa, reminded the universities to put premium on the practical training of their students.

He said they should see to it that students were not only trained for examination purposes but had hands-on experience, to meet the demands of the job market.

“University students must be able to think outside the box to justify their qualification as intellectuals”, he added.
He pointed out that “half-baked graduates are more dangerous to the society than those who have not tasted education at all”, and challenged the students to endeavor to expand their scope of knowledge so that the society would benefit from their expertise.

Dr. Mrs. Lydia Apori-Nkansah of the KNUST Law Faculty, affirmed the university’s determination to mentor graduating students to go into self-employment.
