A young Ghanaian lady could not hide her disappointment after the preliminary results of the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for SHS graduates were announced.
This is because her cousin, who studied General Arts at Kwahu Ridge Senior High School and sat the exam, performed terribly poorly.

As evidence, the lady shared her cousin's result sheet on the Tell It All Facebook page, where it was proven that the boy had F9 in four subjects, D7 in two subjects and E8 in two subjects respectively.
With a combined best six topics totaling 50, the lady shared screenshots of a chat in which the boy begged her not to show the result sheet to his mother.
“Guys, my cousin, go do yawa. The results don't hurt me s3, na he saaso don't eat Eat oo, he claimed it hurts his stomach, 150gh every week. Kwasia CRS – F9 de3 woy3 bonsam substitute?

At the time the report was written, the post had generated over 3,000 likes and 1,000 comments.

Ghanaians react to the results
Netizens gathered in the comments section of the post shared varying opinions on the boy's performance in the WASSCE.
Many believe that the boy simply did not prepare sufficiently for the exam, while others urged the boy not to be discouraged.
Afia Serwaa Akoto stated:
This de3. I'm not sure if he actually wrote any of the papers, because howwwww? Even social studies??
Mambey Yenifahit Bugre noticed:
He may not be good academically, but that doesn't mean he's a failure in life. It's probably not suited to the memorized system we have. Check his passion and put him there.
Daniel Ekow-dadzie Baffoe commented:
Funny, but I feel sorry for the individual. However, nothing is late in life. Shouldn't give up.
Boy excels in WASSCE
