WAEC releases 2015 Nov/Dec results; withholds 970
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released provisional results for the November/December 2015 West African Senior School Certification Examination (WASSCE).
A statement from WAEC signed by Mrs Agnes Teye Cudjoe, Deputy Director of Public Affairs said the results of 970 candidates alleged to have been involved in various examination malpractices have been withheld pending conclusion of investigations into the cases of malpractices. In all a total of 143,116 candidates took part in the examination.
According to WAEC the withheld results would be released as soon as the Council concludes its investigations. Candidates may access their results online at www.waecgh.org.
The statement cautioned members of the public to be wary of the activities of fraudsters who contact candidates with the promises of bettering their results for a fee payable through mobile money transfers.
“The sole aim of these swindlers is to make money from their victims by deceit”
“The Council wishes to assure members of the public that its results database is well secured. As such, all forged results can be detected by its confirmation/verification system. Institutions and organisations are advised to confirm or verify results presented to them directly from the Council or access the confirmation/verification service online at the WAEC website,” it said.
