Exam Malpractice: NEC Approves Cancellation of Results of Culpable Candidates
In the course of considering the various reported cases of malpractice, the Committee, after diligent deliberations, approved appropriate sanctions in all established cases of malpractice, as prescribed by the Rules and Regulations governing the conduct of the Council’s examinations.
It approved that the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Entire Results (CER) be cancelled, while subject results of those involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Subject Results (CSR), be similarly cancelled.
In addition, some candidates will also suffer other sanctions such as barring them from sitting for the Council’s examinations for a certain number of years, some schools will be derecognised for a specified number of years. Some supervisors that were found wanting in the discharge of their examination duties will be formally repotted to their employers and blacklisted while some invigilators will be reported to the appropriate authorities for disciplinary action.
The decisions of the Committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates and schools duly informed by the Council. However, the results of candidates who were exonerated by the Committee will be released.
Now, candidates can check their WAEC Result again to know their fate. You will know if it has been totally cancelled, have some subjects cancelled or everything released.
