The West African Examinations Council (Waec) has released results of the 531,707 final-year junior high school (JHS) students who sat the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) in September.
“The Council will despatch the results to the schools through the Metropolitan/ Municipal/District Directors of Education,” said a press release on Wednesday, December 16.
Meanwhile, the results have been hosted online for easy access to candidates who may so wish to check via a scratch card.
According to the release signed by Head of Public Affairs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, 417 candidates who brought foreign materials into the examination halls had their subject results cancelled.
Forty-four, however, had their entire results cancelled “for bringing mobile phones into the examination hall”.
Some 977 have had their results withheld, pending the conclusion of investigations into various cases of alleged examination malpractice.
“The withheld results of candidates may be cancelled or released based on the outcome of investigations.”
