WAEC To Deregister Schools And Delist Candidates

The West African Examination Council has said that it will publish the names of candidates, supervisors and schools that engage in any form of examination malpractice during any of its examinations.


To give fillip to its threat, WAEC said that all those indicted for examination fraud during the 2011 May/June West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination where 81,573 candidates had their results withheld for alleged involvement in malpractice would have their names published in national newspapers.

This decision was reached at the end of the 52nd meeting of the National Executive Council WAEC, in Lagos last Thursday.

A communiqué issued by the examination body read by the Head, National Office, Nigeria, Dr. Uyi Uwadiae, stated that WAEC would also deregister schools and candidates indicted for examination fraud.

Such candidates would not be able to sit for WAEC conducted examination for some number of years while such schools would also not be allowed to present candidates for its examination for a certain number of years.

Uwadiae said the examination body took the decision after its National Examination Council submitted the report of the 2011 May/June WASSCE examination.
