Following claims that the 2023 BECE results released online are fake, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says 99 per cent of the national examination results at https://eresults.waecgh.org are authentic and genuine.
Speaking in an interview monitored by AcademicWeek, Victor Brew, Head Legal, WAEC said the 2023 BECE for School and Private Candidates results will not be changed as widely circulated on various social media platforms.
“99 per cent of the BECE results are fine, if there is any error we are quick to see and correct it. the West African Examinations Council will not deliver results that are not authentic,” the non-profit-making organization lawyer said.
Asked if students not satisfied with their Basic Education Certificate Examination results can appeal for a remark, the WAEC official replied yes adding that “there is a system for people to write to us for review of the examination script.”
Meanwhile, the management of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) scripts of 22,270 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) students in certain subjects are being scrutinized for reported cases of mass cheating.
