The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the Nov/Dec results of 43,742 students who sat for the 2022 edition of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for Private Candidates.
In a blog post sighted by AcademicWeek, the management of the Council said the entry figure comprises 20,164 males and 23,578 females. Seventy-six (76) of the candidates had visual impairment while two (2) had a hearing impairment.
“The 2022 Nov/Dec results of 901 candidates alleged to have been involved in various cases of examination malpractice have been withheld pending the conclusion of investigations into the cases of malpractice,” WAEC stated.
The WASSCE Private results, the organization said were withheld for malpractices including bringing foreign materials and mobile phones into the examination hall, impersonation, collusion and seeking external assistance among others.
“The Nov/Dec withheld results of candidates will be released or cancelled based on the outcome of investigations. The 2022 WASSCE for Private students results are available online at www.waecgh.org,” the non-profit-making organization said.
