This year’s examination had a higher proportion of female candidates: 804,830 (50.27 percent) were females, while 796,217 (49.73 percent) were males.
The HNO stated that the results of 365,564 candidates, or 22.83 percent of all candidates who took the exam, are being withheld due to various reported cases of examination malpractice.
This is 11.74 percent higher than the 10.9 percent recorded in the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2021, according to him.
He lamented, however, that candidates are no longer prepared to learn, noting that examination preparations are poor due to an over-reliance on the so-called ‘expo.’
“Candidates simply became frustrated when they entered the examination hall and discovered that everything they had celebrated was a hoax.” This has sadly resulted in some of them failing the examination, which they would have passed if they had relied on themselves and studied hard, like many others,” he said, adding that the council would continue to sanction all cases of examination malpractice.
He stated that schools, supervisors, teachers, and candidates who commit exam malpractice are not benefiting the educational system.
The WAEC president warned parents not to fund ‘expos’ for their children.
“Those who post items on designated platforms are nothing more than destiny destroyers.” Beneficiaries of such “assistance” will never go unpunished because they will never see the fruits of their labor. “To sanitize the system, all hands must be on deck,” he said.
Despite the existing ban, he decried the increasing use of cell phones in the examination hall.
WASSCE for School Candidates is an international examination that is usually held at the same time in each of the Council’s five member countries: The Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone.
Though Ghana did not participate in the examination with its other sub-regional counterparts because it is still attempting to align its academic calendar due to the disruptive effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic. As a result, the exam will be held in Ghana between August 1 and September 1, 2022.
