Recent release of The West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) result in Ghana, showed that a total number of 1,339 subject results and the entire results of 174 candidates who sat for the West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) have been cancelled for various examination malpractices such as bringing foreign material including mobile phones into the examination hall, tearing off parts of question papers and collusion
The Head of Public Affairs, Mrs. Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, disclosing the provisional results of the exams, she indicated that the entire results of 3,667 candidates have been withheld pending the conclusion of investigations into various cases of examination malpractice detected during and after the conduct of the examination.
“The scripts of candidates from 194 schools in certain subjects have also been withheld and are being scrutinized,” the statement further read.
Prof. Joseph Osafo has blamed the WAEC for this perennial problem associated with the exams. He asked why the students should suffer for WAEC’s inability to ensuring that the questions they set are not leaked. When they are setting the exams, the children were not there and their teachers too were not there, So where do they get these questions from.
