'WASSCE Paper Leakage Untrue'- WAEC Claps Back at Eduwatch

Following a report by Africa Education Watch, an Education Think-Tank, that this year's Food and Nutrition Paper 3 leaked hours before it was scheduled, WAEC held a press briefing on Monday, 23rd August to debunk the allegations.

Mrs. Wendy Addy-Lamptey said at the press briefing, "We wish to state emphatically that the information put out by Eduwatch about the alleged leakage of Food and Nutrition Paper 3 is untrue, misleading and creating anxiety among the candidates and our publics".

The Head of National Office, Mrs. Wendy Addy-Lamptey further went on to say, "prior to the circulation of the information, one of our Heads of Division received a call and WhatsApp images of the "Instructions to the Food and Nutrition Teacher" and alleged leaked Question paper from Mr. Kofi Asare, CEO of African Education Watch. It must be noted that the "Instructions to the Foods and Nutrition Teacher" was distributed to Heads of School on 16th August 2021 to enable teachers to prepare for the conduct of the actual paper which was taken on Friday, 20th August. The paper clearly contains only guidelines as you can all see and was in the public domain, hence could not be referred to as leaked on 19th August 2021.

The Head of National Office, WAEC expressed shock as the purported leaked questions were not even the questions candidates answered. While the former asked candidates to prepare a two-course meal for an ulcer patient, the latter was a three-course meal. She said the Council is at a loss to the real intentions behind Eduwatch's action.

She indicated this is not the first time of having such an issue with Eduwatch. She cautioned the think-tank that this could inhibit the credibility of WAEC certificates on the international front. She commended some media houses for exhibiting professionalism ever since the issue came up. Find attached copies of the press briefing.
