News coming in to NGScholars has made it known to us, the news WAEC Marking Policy. The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) will henceforth cancel the entire results of candidates who cheat in more than one subject.
This was made known in a statement at the end of the council’s 55th Nigeria Examinations Committee meeting. The council noted that it had observed the indictment of some candidates for malpractice in more than one subject in the November/December, 2012 Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The meeting held from April 15 to April 17 in Lagos.
“In order to check the ugly trend, the committee subsequently decided that the sanction in the council’s rules and regulations should be reviewed.
“It is clear that there is an urgent need to review the rule on such cases from cancellation of subject result to cancellation of entire results,” it said.
“Members believed that if the principal of a school decides that examination malpractice should not be allowed in his or her school, incidences of malpractice will be very minimal.’’
Subjects of irregularities, special and clemency will be posted on the council’s website.
NGscholars hereby uses this medium to implore to all candidates preparing for/writing the 2013 WAEC to shun all form of examination malpractices.
