The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) said it has withheld results of 6,812 students who allegedly indulged in various malpractices in the 2015 Basic Education Certificate Examination pending investigations.
According to WAEC, “the withheld results will be released as soon as the Council concludes its investigations.”
[contextly_sidebar id=”100YuUMh7F1Bh9ESqUMcvejsYr8Nbcej”]Widespread leakage of some of the BECE papers compelled WAEC to cancel five of the papers.
The subjects were English Language 2, Religious and Moral Education 2, Science 2, and Mathematics 2 and Social Studies 2.
A new date was subsequently set for the re-sit of the cancelled papers.
