The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has cancelled the entire results of some 480 candidates who sat for this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) for school candidates due to examination malpratices.
Their results have been cancelled for bringing mobile phones into the examination hall while writing the exams. Meanwhile, the entire results of 384 candidates have been withheld pending investigations into various cases of examination malpractices during and after the conduct of the examinations.
These were indicated in a press release signed by the Head of Public Affairs of WAEC, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, announcing the release of this year’s West African Secondary School Certificate Examination.
