The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has reportedly withheld the results of 26,434 candidates who sat the 2018 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) for offences yet to be made public by the examination body.
This was reported by an Accra based Oman FM on Monday, 16th May, 2018.
In an interview granted by him on the above named radio station, the Chairman of the Ghana Education Service (GES) Council, Professor Michael Nsowah outlined various offences that could necessitate this move.
Professor Nsowah, who doubles as one time Director General of the GES, outlined practices such as furnishing students with already solved questions in the examination hall by teachers, corruption on the part of invigilators, leakage of examination questions, and so on and so forth, as some of the courses that could lead to the reported WAEC action. He, however, ruled out the latter since, according to him, no such report was received – adding that the reasons for the action would be made known after WAEC has finished its work.
