WASSCE 2013: WAEC Cancels Leaked Papers

WASSCE 2013: WAEC Cancels Leaked Papers.

SHS students

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has cancelled Government 1&2 examination papers after “routine inspections” revealed that the secrecy of papers before examination date, have been “compromised”, a statement issued in Accra has said.

The Examination Council which is conducting the May- June 2013 West African Senior School Examinations (WASSCE) said they had found students with “materials” that suggested papers had been leaked.

Mrs. Agnes Cudjoe, Principal Public Affairs Officer who signed that statement said, WAEC “regrets” this uncomfortable measure.

Nonetheless, it needed “to demonstrate its abhorrence of examination malpractices” and to instil “moral uprightness” in students.

The examination papers which were taken on 22nd April 2013, will now be re-administered on 17th May 2013 at 9:00am.

The statement has also asked Heads of Schools to make arrangements to address the “inconvenience” it had “caused” to innocent “stakeholders”.

The Council said it was investigating the malpractices and will soon come out with findings.

    Why on earth should some innocent bloods suffer for the attrocities commited by someone elses? The cancellation of GOVT 1&2 papers is something that affected almost all students offering that subject. Waec is supposed to mark the papers first and later cancell papers that are detected to be copied from text books and leaving the innocent ones.

    It is not fair at all for the WAEC council to have cancelled the government questions both paper 1/2 just like that. Besides gone were the days when fathers commited their sins and the children’s teeth are set on edge. it does not exist now. it is rather the WAEC officials that should face the penalty not the students, besides the students are not resposible for the leakage of the papers.the authorities must deal with the issue once and for all period.

    Cancelling of dat Gvt peper 1&2 is vry wrong, bcos I don’t think dat leaking of d peper is 4rm d candidates rather 4rm d waec official, let he dat is responsible suffer d penalities. Pls I’m begging waec officials not 2 cancel dat peper bcos some of d candidate suffered a lot 2 make sure they register d waec, so if u cancel it some of them may not hav money 2 register again which may promote d numbers criminals in Nigeria. And u know dat leaking of d peper is not 4rm Nigeria.
    Thanks 4 ur Anticipated cooperation is me IKEJIOHA HARMONY

  19. it is always good to instill academic integrity in candidates . the decision of the waec to cancel the papers is a good step in the right direction. At last this will serve as a deterrence to other like-minded students . kudos waec .

    Waec are to be blame for this because they are the ones to keep the papers before they release it to the schools.so the question is, how can a student gets a copy of the paper before they are released meanwhile that student is not a worker at waec but because of corruption,they will be selling it to the students.and now they wanna cancel the papers, So whom are we to blame,students or waec?
