Withheld results: WAEC candidates know fate Nov.9 (DETAILS)

Candidates who sat for this year’s May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) but had their results with­held will on November 9, 2017, know the decision of the West African Examina­tion Council (WAEC) on the affected results.
According to a post on WAEC’s twitter handle, @waecnigeria, the Nigeria Examinations Commit­tee (NEC) of the examina­tion body would deliberate on the issues that led to the non-release of the results between 7th and 9th No­vember, when a final deci­sion will be announced.

“NEC meeting holds from November 7-9, 2017. Please note that withheld results can either be cancelled or released based on the NEC’s decision,” WAEC said.
214,952 results of candi­dates that that sat for the ex­amination are being with­held by the examination body in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractices.

Withheld results: WAEC candidates know fate Nov.9

It would be recalled that a similar meeting of WAEC’s NEC held in Lagos last year regarding the 2016 May/June examination, approved appropriate sanctions in all established cases of mal­practice in line with the rules and regulations gov­erning the conduct of its examinations.
While some of the affect­ed candidates were lucky to have their results released, the entire results and sub­ject results of candidates involved in proven cases of examination malprac­tice were cancelled, even as some schools were sanc­tioned for abetting and aid­ing examination malprac­tice.
