A photo of seven-month pregnant WASSCE candidate and a schoolmate responsible for the pregnancy has gone viral on social media.
The couple, 20 years old and 18 years old respectively are students of Mansoman Senior High School in the Amansie West of the Ashanti Region.
With the 18 years old lady heavily pregnant, the couple are not perturbed but are seriously writing the examination.
revealed that five of their students have been unable to sit for this year’s WASSCE, excluding the two students in question.
The lady revealed what gave her the courage to mingle with her colleagues and write her exams while pregnant.
“I’m in my seventh month, and it may not be advisable for a student to do what I did but since it has happened, I can’t say I won’t write because of shyness. Because of my future, I’m not ashamed of writing with my pregnancy”, she said.
Getting pregnant as a student is an event that is capable of shattering dreams and causes many to quit schooling but this lady’s story shows that life in education can proceed despite the challenges that come with the pregnancy.
