The Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC), at its 60th general meeting, cancelled the results of candidates involved in examination malpractices during the 2015 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The meeting was held on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th November, 2015 at Excellence Hotel & Conference Centre, Ogba – Lagos.
In a statement signed by the Public Affairs Officer of WAEC, Mr Damianus Ojijeogu, the committee received reports on Special, Irregularity and Clemency Cases on the November/December 2014 WASSCE as well as Irregularity Cases arising from the conduct of the May/June 2015 WASSCE.
The statement added that the Committee endorsed appropriate sanctions in all established cases of malpractice as prescribed by the Rules and Regulations governing the conduct of the Council’s examinations after diligent deliberations.

It approved that the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract cancellation of entire results (CER) be cancelled, while subject results of those involved in proven cases which attract cancellation of subject results (CSR), be similarly cancelled.

In addition, some candidates would also suffer other sanctions such as barring them from sitting for the Council’s examinations for a certain number of years.

Moreover, while some schools will be de-recognised as examination centres for some years, other schools’ recognition as examination centres will be withdrawn making them unable to present candidates for WAEC examination.
Also, indicted supervisors have been blacklisted while erring teachers and principals have been reported to their State Ministries of Education and ANCOPPS for disciplinary action.
The decisions of the Committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates will be duly informed by the Council.
It will be recalled that WAEC withheld result of 118,101 candidates that wrote the 2015 May/June examination.
