West Africa Examinations Council, WAEC has cancelled the entire results of candidates involved in examination malpractice.
The Committee, which meets twice a year, to consider matters related to the conduct of the May/June and November/December West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), is the highest decision-making organ of WAEC on examination-related matters in Nigeria.
“In addition, the Committee because of the high incidence of schools writing on the chalkboards for their students to copy during the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2016 decided that if a school is warned for aiding and abetting cheating three times within a period of five years, it would be derecognised. It also took a decision to withdraw the recognition of two schools for assaulting a Supervisor,” the communiqué signed by Ojijeogu stated.
The committee also resolved that, henceforth, any school that allow candidates to be impersonated during the WASSCE for school candidates will be sanctioned. It however, frowned at the situation where candidates forge the signatures of supervisors on their scripts.
