66th NEC Meeting: WAEC Reads Riot Act To Candidates Involved In Exam Malpractice, Threatens to Publish Names

The West Africa Examination Council, WAEC has redoubled its efforts in taking measures that could discourage candidates from engaging in examination malpractices and other compromising conducts.

The exam body specifically on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, said it will start publishing names of candidates involved in malpractice.

This latest intervention was contained in a statement signed by its Head of Public Affairs, Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, WAEC said the decision to publish names of offenders was part of WAEC’s resolutions at its 66th Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) meeting held at Ogba, Lagos.

The committee is described as the highest decision-making organ of WAEC on examination-related matters in Nigeria and meets twice a year, to consider matters relating to the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates and Private

WAEC through this committee has decided that any candidate, invigilator and supervisor caught involved in exam malpractice will have their names published.

Ojijeogwu said; “Candidates, invigilators and supervisors caught aiding and abetting examination malpractice, WAEC, ANCOPSS and the States Ministry of Education will publish their names to serve as a deterrent for others.

“States Ministry of Education and school principals are to check the ugly trend by looking at the calibre and integrity of teachers nominated as supervisors for public examinations.

“The Committee observed that even with the commendable efforts of the Council in the fight against examination malpractice, the menace is still on the increase.

“There was high rate of impersonation as a form of examination malpractice during the WASSCE examinations.

“In the course of considering the various reported cases of malpractice, the Committee, after diligent deliberations, approved appropriate sanctions in all established cases of malpractice, as prescribed by the Rules and Regulations governing the conduct of the Council’s examinations.

In the course of considering the various reported cases of malpractice, the Committee, after diligent deliberations, approved appropriate sanctions in all established cases of malpractice, as prescribed by the Rules and Regulations governing the conduct of the Council’s examinations.

It approved that the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Entire Results (CER) be cancelled, while subject results of those involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Subject Results (CSR), be similarly cancelled.’’ He said

The statement added: ”In addition, some candidates will also suffer other sanctions such as barring them from sitting for the Council’s examinations for a certain number of years, some schools will be derecognised for a specified number of years, some supervisors that were found wanting in the discharge of their examination duties will be formally reported to their employers and blacklisted while some invigilators will be reported to the appropriate authorities for disciplinary action.

The decisions of the Committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates and schools duly informed by the Council. However, the results of candidates who were exonerated by the Committee will be released.”
