The West African Examination Council (WAEC) at its 65th NEC meeting held in Lagos has taken some resolutions on the issue of examination malpractice.
In the communiqué signed by the Head, Public Affairs, Demianus Ojijieogu and made available to reporters, the committee approved appropriate sanctions in all established cases of malpractice, as prescribed by the rules and regulations governing the conduct of the council’s examination.
According to the communiqué, henceforth, candidates involved in malpractice during the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) would be banned from retaking the exams for a specific number of years.
In addition, the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases of malpractice will attract Cancellation of Entire Results (CER) while subject results of those involved in proven cases will attract the cancellation of Subject Results (CSR)
It was gathered that the decision of the committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates and examination centres duly informed by the council.
