The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has stated that students caught involved in malpractice during the on-going 2018 WASSCE will not be allowed to write the exam for many years. This is part of the resolutions made at the recent 65th Nigeria examinations committee (NEC) meeting which held in Lagos.

According to the statement signed by Demianus Ojijieogu, Head of Public Affairs, the committee approved various sanctions for all established cases of malpractice.

The statements reads;

“In the course of considering 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 examination.

“It approved the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract cancellation of entire results (CER) while subject results of those involved in proven cases which attract cancellation of subject results (CSR) be similarly cancelled.

“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.

It was reported that the decision of the committee will be implemented immediately and the affected candidates and examination centres would be duly informed by the council. However, the results of candidates who were pardoned by the committee will be released.

WAEC said it will use the differentia profile application to detect examination irregularities in multiple-choice questions.
