The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has released the results of the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates.
Head of the Nigeria National Office, Patrick Areghan, who disclosed this at a press briefing on Monday, announced that the examination body withheld the results of 215,149 candidates who sat for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination in Nigeria.
According to Areghan, the examination was simultaneously and successfully conducted throughout the five member countries. The Council said the results of the 215,149 candidates representing 13.98% of the total number of candidates who wrote the examination are being withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice.
“The cases are being investigated and reports of the investigations will be presented to the appropriate Committee of the Council for determination in due course. The Committee’s decisions will be communicated to the affected candidates through their various schools.
“81,718 candidates, representing 5.31% have a few of their subjects still being processed due to some errors on the part of the candidates. Efforts are, however, being made to speedily complete the processing to enable all the affected candidates get their results fully processed and released, subsequently”, he stated.
