Following investigations into incidences of examination malpractice discovered during the examination, the 32nd Meeting of the BECE Final Awards and Examiners’ Appointment Committee, held on February 22, 2022, approved:

  1. Cancellation of the Subject Results of 138 candidates for the offence of either bringing in foreign materials into the examination hall or colluding with other candidates;
  2. Cancellation of the Entire Results of 46 candidates for the offence of either sending mobile phones into the examination hall or impersonation;

Meanwhile, in certain topics, the scripts of candidates from 24 schools are being examined. Depending on the outcome of investigations, candidates’ withheld results may be revoked or revealed.

The Council warns all stakeholders to be careful of con artists who claim to be able to improve results for a charge. Candidates should be aware that WAEC results are safe and may be verified.

The Council wishes to extend its heartfelt gratitude to all stakeholders, particularly the Ministry of Education, Ghana Education Service, Security Agencies, Supervisors, Invigilators, Examiners, and those who helped it conduct the examination successfully and disseminate the results in various ways.
