Investigations by Education Think Tank, Africa Education Watch have revealed that question papers for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) were leaked to candidates.

He stated that a day after his outfit hinted WAEC that the papers were leaked directly from their headquarters, WAEC indicated that it had commenced investigations into the matter. However WAEC has failed to brief Africa Education Watch on the outcome of the investigations.

“WAEC confirmed the day after we blew the cover that indeed it had leaked from their headquarters and that they had instituted an internal inquiry. 10 months after the leakage, no one has informed us about the outcome of such an inquiry and whether it happened at all.

 

“But it leaked from the WAEC’s own IT department and it leaked unto a platform which was eventually forwarded to our assessment team by a member of that particular platform,” he added.

Speaking to JoyNews‘ Evans Mensah on NewsNite, Wednesday, Mr Asare alleged that the leaked information contained the names, email addresses, telephone numbers of examiners.

“But WAEC immediately after the leakage held a press conference, met the media and assured them that particular list was a provisional list and that they had about 20,000 markers or examiners and so the 1,520 could not have… only to turn around and use the same 1,520 examiners to mark the papers.

“If you go to the UK’s regulator, which is the office of qualification assessment. Their standards include among others a non-disclosure of the contact details of external examiners and markers so that particular action by WAEC fell short of WAEC’s own standard,” he added.

The Executive Director at Africa Education Watch noted that during a discussion concerning the report conducted by his outfit, the Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Adutwum stated that the government is committed to reform the assessment sector and make it more credible, hence prevent such from occurring in the future.
