The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) as it prepares to release the 2021 private BECE results of candidates who sat for the just-ended BECE for Private examination has warned students and the public to refrain from what it described as “results upgrading.”
WAEC in a blog post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh said it has come to its attention the activities of some unscrupulous individuals on social media claiming to be WAEC staff and promising to results upgrade for a fee.
“The Council wishes to advise members of the public to be on the alert for fraudsters who contact candidates with the promise of upgrading their results for a fee,” the non-profit-making organization stated in the post.
According to WAEC, its results database is well secured, and as such all forged results can be detected by the confirmation/verification system which has been made available to institutions and organisations.
Candidates and members of the general public have been urged to check their 2021 BECE private results only at the official results checking portal of the Examinations Council at https://www.ghana.waecdirect.org.
