The Management of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says the investigation into withheld WASSCE results of candidates who sat for the 2021 edition of the international examination will not take longer than 31 days.
Agnes Teye Cudjoe, the spokeswoman for the Council in an interview monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh said her outfit is working tirelessly to release the results of candidates not found guilty in exam malpractice on time.
“We always give the benefit of the doubt, we do not just go about and cancel the papers of students, No!. We will conduct our investigations and ensure that innocent people will not suffer for malpractices that they know nothing of”
According to her, the non-profit-making organization (WAEC) after the in-depth investigation will consult the Ghana Examinations Committee on the outcome of the finding to decide on the release of the withheld results.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) indicated that the withheld WASSCE results of the 2021 Senior High School prospective graduates may be cancelled or released based on the outcome of the ongoing investigations.
Mrs Agnes comment comes after the West African Examinations Council on Wednesday announced it has withheld a total of 3,667 candidates for their alleged involvement in examination malpractice during the conduct of the WASSCE.
WAEC also disclosed a total number of 1,339 subject results and 174 entire results have been cancelled for various examination malpractices such as bringing foreign material including mobile phones into the examination hall.
“The scripts of candidates from 194 schools in certain subjects have also been withheld and are being scrutinised. The withheld results of candidates may be cancelled or released based on the outcome of the investigations,” it said.
