The West African Examinations Council wishes to inform numerous public that it has released provisional results of 43,742 candidates who entered the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for Private Candidates, 2022 – Second Series. 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 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. These malpractices include bringing foreign materials and mobile phones into the examination hall, impersonation, collusion, seeking external assistance among others.
The Council is cautioning members of the public to be on the alert for scammers who contact candidates with the promise of upgrading their results for a fee payable through mobile money transfers. Candidates are to note that WAEC’s results database is well-secured and all results can be authenticated. Institutions and organisations are therefore advised to confirm or verify results presented to them directly from WAEC or access the confirmation/verification service online at the WAEC website.
The Council wishes to express its appreciation to all stakeholders for their support in the successful conduct of the examination, marking of scripts and release of results.
