WAEC withholds results of over 1,800 private candidates

| Updated Nov 25, 2017 at 3:21pm



The West Africa Examination Council, WAEC, has released provisional results of 117,306 private candidates who sat for the 2017 West Africa Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination, WASSCE.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Acting Deputy Director for Public Affairs Rev. Victor Brew.

The statement said the results of 1,873 candidates have been withheld.

The candidates, who have their results withheld, are alleged to have been involved in various examination malpractices.

Candidates in such a situation will have their results released as soon as the Council concludes investigations into the cases of malpractices.

Candidates, who however, have their results released, can access their results online at www.waecgh.org.

Meanwhile, the Council has cautioned the public to be alert of the activities of fraudsters, who contact candidates with the promise of bettering their results for a fee payable through mobile money transfer.

The Council has assured the public of a secured results database, as such all forged results can be detected by a confirmation or verification system.

It further urged Institutions and organisations to confirm or verify results presented to them directly from the Council or access the confirmation or verification service online at the WAEC website.
