The West African Examinations Council says questions in the past question booklets procured by the government do not represent the questions for this year’s examination, thus candidates who rely on the Pasco do so at their own risk.
In an interview monitored by AcademicWeek, Martin Mensah, the Senior Assistant Registrar Records & Aptitude Test Department – WAEC said the past question booklet is only to guide the students preparing to sit for the examination.
“I would like to emphasise that past questions are materials sent out to guide the candidates on how to answer the WASSCE questions but if you rely on them and these questions do not drop you will be in hot waters,” he stated.
The WAEC Senior Assistant Registrar has urged prospective candidates to study their books and go by the rules and regulations governing the conduct of the international examination to be administered in this academic year.
The management of the West African Examinations Council is yet to announce the total of final year Senior High School (SHS) students to participate in this year’s WASSCE for School examination slated for August 2022.
Ahead of the administration of the 2022 WASSCE, persons to be associated with the conduct of the final examination including supervisors and invigilators have been urged to be guided by the rules of the International examination.
“We urge them to be vigilant, refrain from taking their mobile phones to the examination hall and carry out their duties as expected. Curbing examination malpractice is a collective responsibility,” WAEC told supervisors at a meeting.
Candidates similarly have been advised to comply with the rules and regulations of the examination and the novel Covid-19 protocols and avoid any form of malpractice that could lead to the cancellation of their subject results.
“Avoid any form of malpractice that could lead to the cancellation of their results and being barred from taking examinations conducted by West African Examinations Council,” the not-for-profit organization has urged candidates.
