The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the provisional results for both school and private candidates who participated in the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
In a press release, WAEC announced that the results for school candidates will be sent to their respective schools through the Metropolitan/Municipal/District Directors of Education.
The statement, dated November 9, 2023, and signed by the Head of Public Affairs of WAEC, John Kapi, said.
“School candidates who so desire may also access their results online at the Council’s website.”
However, WAEC disclosed that the scripts of 22,270 candidates in specific subjects are currently on hold as they are being investigated for reported cases of mass cheating.
Depending on the outcome of the investigations, their results may either be cancelled or released, it said.
WAEC has advised all stakeholders to be cautious of individuals who promise to upgrade results in exchange for a fee.
“Candidates are urged to remember that WAEC results are secure and can be verified for authenticity,” the Council added.
