The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says cases of questions leakage will be a thing of the past during the administration of this 2021 Nov/Dec, BECE and WASSCE for School examinations scheduled for late this year.
Speaking in an interview monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh, the Head, Public Affairs of the Examinations Council, Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe said effective measures have been putten in place to ensure no such case is recorded.
“This year we have put in place strict measures I am not going to disclose in this interview for security reasons to ensure no question paper is leaked during the administration of this year BECE and WASSCE examination,” she stated.
Mrs Agnes Teye said the Council in the past decades had executed various steps including cancelling candidates entire results to curb the regular examination leakage and malpractice but this time is a different thing altogether.
“We in the past years have put in much effort to stop the unfortunate incident from happening but you see once people want to cheat they always find ways and means, this year is a different thing we are going to do,” Teye added.
The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his 2021 State of the Nation Address disclosed the government this year will support the non-profit-making organization to reduce cases of examination misconduct.
He said the Government of Ghana this year through the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) will ensure cases of examination questions leakage and malpractice are not recorded during and after the national examination.
