Why we delayed 413 scores from WASSCE 2023 – WAEC


The first set of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination results for private applicants for 2023 have been made public according to the West African Examinations Council.

However, 413 of the 8,348 students who took the exam had their results withheld because of various forms of examination fraud.

He said, “The results of 413 candidates, representing 4.95% of the total number of candidates that sat the examination, are being withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice. The cases are being investigated and reports of the investigations will be presented to the appropriate Committee of the Council for determination in due course.”
