WAEC to Determine the Fate of 262,803 Withheld WASSCE Results

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is set to make crucial decisions today regarding the cases of malpractice and irregularities that emerged during the administration of the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).

Previously, during the tenure of the former WAEC head, Mr. Patrick Areghan, in August, when the results of WASSCE were announced, it was disclosed that a total of 262,803 results were withheld due to various instances of malpractice and irregularities.

A part of the statement released at that time stated: "On behalf of the Registrar to Council, the Management and Staff of the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, Nigeria, I welcome you to this press briefing to announce the release of the results of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, for school candidates, 2023 in Nigeria.

"Out of a total of 1,613,733 candidates that sat for the examination, the results of 262,803 candidates are being withheld due to reports of cases of examination malpractice."

In the early hours of Tuesday, through the Council's official communication channel, WAEC communicated that a decision regarding the withheld results would be reached during the 76th Meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC), which will address and decide on cases of malpractice and irregularities arising from the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2023.
