Following the cancellation of two papers which were Elective Mathematics and English language, WAEC has reached out to the public, releasing an official statement and cancellation of another two papers.
Most students in rely solely on external papers rather than preparing for their exams. The West African Examination Council (WAEC) made a warning earlier that any candidate caught in the act of cheating will be sanctioned by the examinations council. They warned students that if they are caught engaging in any form of malpractice, they will be bitterly penalised.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) had made a confirmation that two papers of the ongoing wassce leaked online. These papers were written subsequently on 9th September and 13 September respectively. The council noted that these papers were found in the public domain a few days ago.
They admitted that parts of the questions for the English Language 2 and Mathematics 2 exams were circulated on some social media platforms before the exams. The examination management body made it known that it will deploy "various internationally accepted assessment procedures and interventions" to ensure the credibility of students' results.
WAEC is scrutinizing scripts at schools where aromas of cheating were smelled so appropriate sanctions can be applied. Invigilators who were also found guilty have been halted from working with WAEC and deemed unlawful for further sanctioning.
Consequently, Business Management and Physics papers yesterday, September 15, 2021,also had to be cancelled.
Headmasters and teachers had to return to their schools after WAEC cancelled papers for science and business students. Some Science and Business students who had prepared to write the papers at 8:30am were disappointed upon receiving news of the cancellation from the West African School Certificate Examinations Council (WAEC).
These papers reportedly got leaked around dawn on Wednesday.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has released a statement detailing the turnout of events in the exams this year. WAEC affirmed that new dates for the re-write of the exams (Business Management and Physics) would be communicated in due time.
