The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has withdrawn recognition for 113 secondary schools nationwide, as punishment for examination malpractices. Also, results of 30, 654 candidates, who sat for the May/June 2012 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) have been cancelled. According to Saturday Sun findings, WAEC has also cancelled individual subject results of 83, 745 candidates, released the results of 1, 549 and barred for two years 3, 321 candidates from sitting for the council examination over misconduct during the school exam, in line with the rules and regulations guiding the conduct of the examination.

The cancelled results were among the 112, 000 results of candidates withheld for their involvement in examination malpractice out of 1, 695, 878 candidates that sat for the May/June 2012 WASSCE. Only 38.81 per cent (649, 156) of the total candidates that sat for the May/June 2012 WASSCE obtained five credits in English Language, Mathematics and three other subjects, thus were qualified for admissions into universities and polytechnics.

The Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) of the council took the far-reaching decisions in Lagos after it deliberated on evidences (exhibits) produced by the council, which were seized from some candidates involved in examination malpractice. Other decisions taken by NEC include recommendation for sanctions against 97 supervisors/principals/other examination personnel identified and reported to their various state ministries of education, while 21 supervisors also indicted were blacklisted.

The WAEC committee also recommended that 465 secondary schools be warned for aiding and abetting examination malpractice during the 2012 May/June WASSCE, granted clemency to eight candidates even as the certificates of 12 others were withdrawn after they asked for restitution. The NEC, which was chaired by the Director of Basic and Secondary Education), Ministry of Education, Abuja, directed that the allegations against 930 candidates be further investigated, while their results are withheld.

Also, the council withdrew the recognition of six schools and commended one staff. A breakdown of schools sanctioned nationwide revealed that majority came from the South-South, followed by those from the North, South East and South West. Government-owned schools top the list of those involved in exam fraud. The NEC recommendation shows that recognition for 21 schools were withdrawn for two years. Also, recognition for 43 others were withdrawn, along side the principals of the schools.

Saturday Sun learnt that the council has communicated the decisions of NEC to the state ministries of education, which is expected to take action against the schools and principals indicted by WAEC.
