The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has refuted rumours going around which suggests that there has been a leakage in the ongoing 2019 The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) examination.
Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, deputy director in charge of public affairs at WAEC said the exams commenced in April and there has not been reports of exams leakage at any examination center as it is being circulated on social media.
Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, deputy director in charge of public affairs at WAEC who spoke with Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive asked the general public to disregard such information.
She added that although examination body has seen the said exam papers on social media, the rumour does not depict the reality on the ground.
She, however, noted that a formal complaint has been made to the Cyber Crime Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police on the operations of some rogue websites, purportedly aiding in examination malpractices.
She explained that although a great number of candidates have conducted themselves very well, candidates suspected to have been involved in examination malpractice are also being investigated and that due diligence would be followed to ensure fairness to all.
The Council has urged all stakeholders including members of the public to collaborate with it to safeguard the integrity of the examinations and certificates awarded.
