Very Reverend Dr Sam Nii Nmai Ollennu, the Head of West African Examination Council, National Head Office, has said that 2, 293 candidates cheated in last year’s West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

He said with the aid of the new anti-malpractice software, Item Differentia Profile (IDP), developed by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), candidates who were identified to have cheated in the core subjects namely English Language, Mathematics and Integrated Science also had their relevant subject results cancelled.

“In spite of the interactions with candidates during our sensitization programmes and engagement with stakeholders, quite a number of malpractices were recorded in the 2016 WASSCE.

“Consequently, for the 2016 WASSCE for school candidates, 11,277 candidates lost various subject results, whilst 647 candidates had their entire results cancelled,” Rev Ollennu made the observation at the 2016 WASSCE Distinction Awards held in Accra on Thursday.
