A recent exposé by KWAMI ALORVI sheds light on the alarming issue of leaked 2023 WASSCE papers, along with their corresponding answers. Alarmed by this discovery, Mr. Alorvi and his team promptly lodged an official complaint with the relevant authorities.
In an article titled “KWAMI ASKS: CAN THE ANCHOR HOLD FOR THE WEST AFRICAN EXAMINATIONS COUNCIL (WAEC)?,
Mr. Alorvi delves into the matter further.
Wednesday, 6th September, 2023; Yesterday, our team exposed the leakage of the 2023 WASSCE Elective Mathematics (written) questions, complete with worked-out answers, on four different Instagram platforms. We raised concerns about the potential leakage of other papers if WAEC didn’t take swift preventive measures. Sadly, our concerns have become a reality.
Regrettably, WAEC failed to act decisively after our initial warning. This morning, at 5:30 a.m., Chemistry Practical papers and Fante/Twi papers, scheduled for an 8:30 a.m. start, were leaked on one of the same Instagram platforms. Worked-out answers for the Fante/Twi paper were also attached to the leaked questions. Between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m., these leaked materials circulated widely on WhatsApp platforms used by students and teachers nationwide.
As usual, we promptly informed our superiors, including two Deputy Directors General at the GES Headquarters, Mr. Isaac Danso (responsible for the 2023 WASSCE at WAEC Headquarters), a retired WAEC official, and a Regional WAEC Official. We provided them with evidence, including:
i) The leaked Chemistry Practical Paper
ii) The leaked Fante/Twi paper
iii) The worked-out answers for the Fante/Twi paper
iv) An advertisement by the WASSCE SOURCE 2023 attached to the leaked questions and answers, which read:
“Ditto Ditto Ditto Ditto”
“Kunk 100% 100% 100%”
“Payment ongoing, 80gh”
“Questions and Answers are safe and secured”
This advertisement underscores that the commercialization of WASSCE extends beyond schools. Students register on these platforms, pay for access, and receive leaked questions well in advance of the exams.
Our team can confirm that many students across the country now refuse to arrive at examination rooms on time. Instead, they wait outside to obtain the leaked questions and answers, often arriving late, sometimes over an hour behind schedule. Many Assistant Headmasters responsible for exam supervision try to enforce the rules by preventing latecomers from entering the exam rooms. However, Headmasters and Headmistresses consistently intervene, allowing these students to enter the exam rooms. Some students who receive the questions in advance even seek their teachers’ assistance in solving them before the exams begin.
Numerous questions demand answers from WAEC.
i) Given this concrete evidence of leakage, will WAEC cancel the affected papers or choose to overlook the issue once again? We have a teacher willing to testify about students approaching them with leaked Elective Mathematics questions on Tuesday, 5th September, 2023, if an investigation is launched.
ii) Have the rules requiring students to report to the exam room at least thirty minutes before the start of exams been waived? If not, why are school heads allowing latecomers?
iii) Has the ban on mobile phones in exam rooms been lifted? If not, why are invigilators bringing mobile phones into the exam rooms?
iv) Now that the Instagram platform operators’ contact information has been revealed, will authorities apprehend the culprit for questioning, or will they allow them to escape consequences?
With the surge in question leakage, can WAEC weather this storm? Will the center hold? Can the falcon hear the falconer? Only time will provide the answers.
To Chairman of the Church of Pentecost (CoP), Apostle Eric Kwabena Nyamekye, we extend our greetings. A concerned member of your church has tasked our team with conveying long-standing examination malpractice issues in one of your schools. With divine guidance, we will make this request public tomorrow, as we lack your contact information. Thank you.
