The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has released the provisional results of candidates who sat for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE), blocking the results of 4,878 candidates for failing to return learning support materials supplied to them by their schools.
The affected candidates have been asked to contact their various schools.
A statement issued by WAEC on Monday (18 December) said, “the results of 4,878 candidates have been blocked for failing to return learning support materials supplied to them by their schools. Such candidates are to contact their schools.”
WAEC further cautioned candidates to be wary of fraudsters who promise to upgrade results for a fee, assuring that results are secured and can be authenticated using its results verification system.
WAEC also cancelled the subject results of 3,647 candidates for bringing foreign material such as prepared notes, textbooks, and printed material into the examination halls.
839 entire results of candidates were cancelled for possessing mobile phones in the examination halls.
WAEC also has withheld the subject results of 4,280 candidates and the entire results of 1,005 for various suspected offences.
Some subject results of candidates from 235 schools have been withheld for collusion and for using artificial intelligence-generated answers.
