West African Examination Council (WAEC) has declared that students guilty of exam malpractice will be barred from writing the exams for a number of years.


This was revealed in a communiqué following the resolutions made at the recent 65th Nigeria examinations committee (NEC) meeting which held in Lagos. Signed by Demianus Ojijieogu, Head, Public Affairs, NEC, it was revealed that the committee approved various sanctions for all established cases of malpractice. “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,” the communiqué read.
“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. “The decision of the committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates and examination centres duly informed by the council. However, the results of candidates who were exonerated by the committee will be released.”
