The results of some 5,252 candidates out of the total number of students who sat for the 2012 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) have been withheld by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) pending investigations into various examination malpractices.
The results of 180 candidates have also been cancelled.
WAEC made this known on the release of the provisional results of the April 2012 BECE results.
The Principal Public Affairs Officer at WAEC, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, told Citi News
the Council will be able to confirm the examination malpractices of the students after the investigations are concluded.
She said, “we have finished processing majority of the results but for those whose results have been withheld, we have commenced investigations into the matter and we will be able to say for certain after we have confirmed all or otherwise whether they really engaged in any malpractice.”
The results for the various schools will be dispatched through the District Directors of Education.
Students have, however, been urged to access their results online.
