The West African Examinations Council announced on Monday that it has released the provisional results of school candidates who sat for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

Although statistics of this year’s results show that there is a general improvement in the performance of candidates at A1-C6 in all the core subjects, the number of candidates whose results have been withheld has been increased 70% over last year’s figure.

Last year, the results of 26,434 candidates were withheld but this year’s figures indicate an over 70% increase in examination malpractice.

Reasons Why WAEC Freezes Results

The Examination Council withholds the results of candidates who are suspected to have engaged in examination malpractice.

The offence of these candidates, according to WAEC include:

1. bringing foreign material such as prepared notes, printed material and mobile phones to the examination hall

2. Conspiracy among candidates

3. Planned cheating which occurred with the help of some supervisors and school authorities

The withheld results of candidates may be cancelled or released based on the outcome of the investigations

What to do if Your WASSCE Results have been Withheld

Knowing that your results have been withheld can be very stressful, especially when you believe that you did not engage in any form of examination malpractice.

What is worse is that you you may not gain entry to university this year as the school you applied to as an awaiting student will not have access to your results.

What you should do at this point is not to be anxious but to be calm and trust that WAEC will conclude their investigation for your results will be released.

It is expected that the examination council will conclude their investigations before the end of November.

WAEC, in a statement has said that candidates who will be found guilty of examination malpractice will have their results cancelled.
