A 22-year-old final year student of Akyem Swedru Senior High School (SHS) in Ghana was reported to have delivered a baby while writing the ongoing West African School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
According to reports, the students were writing Biology paper when the pregnant girl began to scream, attracting the attention of the invigilators. The student had allegedly delivered the baby boy without the assistance of her colleagues.
Daily Guide reports: She was later rushed to the Akyem Roman Catholic Hospital for medical attention. Meanwhile, DAILY GUIDE has gathered that the baby boy had been named Kwaku Biology – (Kwaku, for the day he was born and Biology, the paper the student was writing before the delivery).
According to some sources, the student was impregnated by her fiancé but the man refused to contact the girl’s family because he claimed the girl was too fat. The mother of the student, Mama Yaa, told the paper via telephone that she had no knowledge of her daughter’s pregnancy. Danwono A.K. Michael, the headmaster of Akyem Swedru Senior High School, expressed surprise at the development, stating that the student never toyed with her studies.
