WAEC Withholds Results of 16% of 2033 Candidates for Malpractice

WAEC Withholds Candidates Results for Malpractice.

The WAEC’s Head of Nigeria Office, Mr. Patrick Areghan, said the figure of 262,803 withheld results, representing 16.29 per cent of the total number of candidates that sat the examination in 2023, is lower than the 22.83 per cent recorded in 2022.

“The reasons for this are not far-fetched. Candidates are no longer ready to study, they lack self-confidence and preparations for examinations are poor,” he said “There is over-reliance on the so-called ‘expo’, which is non-existent.”

He reiterated that the council will continue to sanction all cases of examination malpractice while noting that all the reported cases of “organized cheating” are being investigated.
