WAEC Set To Cancel Results of Students Caught Cheating

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is a non-profit-making organization, with its headquarters in Accra. The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) was established in 1952. Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and The Gambia were the first four members who joined the team in 1952. Afterwards, Liberia became the fifth member of the Council in 1974.

The role of this Council is to examine students at the end of their junior high and senior high school education. The council is responsible for setting examinable questions and also taking control of the final examinations of students who are aiming to further their education to Senior High Schools and Universities.

According to rumours, the failure of some students to study hard, and make necessary preparation before the exam, leads to over-reliance of these students to depend solely on "apor". They, however, end up fumbling at the exam hall.

WAEC has always caught students who have broken their rules in the past years. However, as a way of reducing these malpractices, WAEC has always announced to students and the general public what is likely to happen to any of the candidates. Thus, when anyone falls victim.

Students who are caught cheating at the examination hall, are likely to be penalised or prosecuted.

Students/candidates are urged to desist from any act of malpractice.

Candidates who enter examination halls with mobile phones or any other electronic gadgets will have their entire results cancelled. WAEC's warning comes as it begins registration for the second series of WASSCE for private candidates.

Candidates are not supposed to register (not less than twenty-four hours) at the scheduled time of the paper(s) they intend to write. Candidates who engage in examination malpractice will not only have their results cancelled but may also be prosecuted. Reportedly, the fee taken is GH¢25,000.

Candidates with special needs could also register online like other candidates but they must clearly state their disabilities.

According to the council, a request for correction will not be accepted on any edit of information that a candidate voluntarily gives at the point of registration as soon as the examination starts.
