The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on Monday released the provisional results of 133,986 candidates who took the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for Private Candidates, 2018.
The entire results of 2,160 candidates alleged to have been involved in various examination malpractices have been withheld pending the conclusion of investigations into the cases of malpractices.
A statement signed by Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, Deputy Director of Public Affairs for WAEC, explained that the withheld results would be released as soon as the Council concludes its investigations.
The Council also urged members of the public to be wary of the activities of fraudsters who contact candidates with the promise of bettering their results for a fee payable through mobile money transfers.
“Institutions and organizations are advised to confirm or verify results presented to them directly from the Council or access the confirmation/verification service online at the WAEC website,” the statement added.
