WAEC begins investigations into allegations of examination malpractices in SHSs

The West Africa Examination Council, WAEC says it has begun investigations into allegations of Examination malpractices in some Senior High Schools in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The sub-regional examination body tells that, teachers in some schools have been implicated in the misconduct resulting in the student-agitations recorded in some areas.

The WAEC Branch Controller in the Ashanti region, Divine Worlanyo Agbenyo said schools stand the risk of having their entire papers cancelled if found culpable.

“When we are writing the exams and we have irregular activities before or after the exams, all these are punishable. Some of these are such that you can have the entire results for that paper cancelled. The onus rests on students and parents to ensure that children study hard to merit whatever certificate that they will be getting,” he said.
