WAEC Must Declare Its Incapacity To Pave Way For A Competent Examination Body-Boad William, EAI Boss

The policy think tank organization, Educate Africa Institute, has advised the West African Examination Council (WAEC) that, they must with immediate effect declare its ineptitude to pave way for a competent Examination body to conduct the clean examination in this country. Also, they must arrest their officers; invigilators, and supervisors who are culprits of the examination malpractice, after thorough investigation proofs them guilty and stop withholding and canceling exams results.


With reference to the 2020 WASSCE results, dated 13th of November, 2020. 2,383 candidates' exams have been annulled because they entered the exams hall with foreign materials. 480 candidates also had theirs annulled for they entered the hall with mobile phones. And then 384 results have been withheld for investigation.

In 2019, WAEC withheld 48,855(14.12%) candidates' results on the same malpractices case for investigation but the outcome is still in the camera.

Also, in 2018 WAEC withheld results of 26,434 candidates, which was 13 July 2018.

So, EAI contends indicate that WAEC is always aware that some contractors like invigilators, supervisors, and other stakeholders like MoE, GES, GPS, External supervisors may be tempted to leak questions or allow students to cheat before or during the examinations.

WAEC must, therefore, release all results and rather apprehend the contractors and the stakeholders who supervised that shady work. Because, records show that, WAEC is just interested in walking over some students future and is not ready to seal the loopholes to ensure professional examination conduct in the country.

Naturally, every candidate finds means of passing his/her exams and when a contractor fails to do good work, the hatchet must be carried by the contractor but not the candidate.

Don't blame the students, but blame the officers in charge because no student is decent during exams of this nature.


1. Our education needs a more practical approach. Enough of the air-talk.

2. WAEC must pay invigilators and supervisors well.

3. WAEC must replace their operation lines with dent measures and even organize workshops and seminars.

4. WAEC must declare their incredibility to pave way for a competent examination body to help them regain their credibility.

Educate Africa Institute is only interested in achieving the best for the country as a whole, the country's only source of credible educational policies and analysis.

We are citizens of Ghana. Africa is born in us.
