WAEC Outlines Measures Against WASSCE Fraud

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) says it has adopted eleven different measures to protect examination papers as theory exams begin today, August 22, 2022.

The Council says it has collaborated with the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) to monitor the printing of the papers; working with security agencies to track and arrest persons operating rogue websites; inspection and upgrade of depots nationwide; serialisation of some question papers; and movement of exam papers from strong rooms to depots in batches.

It has also created additional depots near schools to avoid delay; uses number-combination padlocks in addition to padlocks for security bags containing exam papers; issues question papers 45 minutes to scheduled time; inspects and surveys malpractice-prone centres; and name and shame schools engaged in malpractices.

The WASSCE began on August 1, 2022.

The examination council reports that 422, 883 candidates from 977 schools are sitting for the examination in 775 centres.

The candidates are sitting for 60 subjects.
