The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has initiated the 76th meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee to address cases of malpractice and irregularities arising from the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates. This announcement was made through WAEC’s official communication platform on Tuesday.
On Monday, WAEC had appointed Dr. Amos Josiah Dangut as the Head of the Nigeria National Office.
In August, WAEC initially released the results of the 2023 WASSCE; however, the outcomes of 262,803 candidates were put on hold due to reported instances of examination malpractice.
The examination body has assured candidates that information about their results will be communicated once the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) concludes its deliberations.
“The 76th Meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) to consider & decide on the malpractice/irregularity cases arising from the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2023 begins today,” the post stated.
Further details will be provided later.
