The West African Examinations Council (WASSCE) has released provisional results of 391,420 out of the 409,759 candidates that wrote this year’s May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The results, it said, would be dispatched to schools in due course.
A statement signed by the Principal Public Affairs Officer of WAEC, Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, said the council had meanwhile hosted the results online and candidates who desired might access their results at the council’s website.
“However, following a request from the Ghana Education Service (GES), the results of candidates who have outstanding school fees to settle have been blocked at the council’s website. The affected candidates should contact their heads of schools for their results,” it said.
The statement said the entire results of all candidates presented by 77 schools have been withheld pending the conclusion of investigations into various examination malpractices.
In that same regard, it said, the entire results of 2,769 individual candidates from other schools were being withheld.
“The withheld results will be released as soon as the council concludes investigations into examination irregularities committed.
“Details on performance statistics and examination irregularities will be punished as soon as the outstanding results are finalised,” it said.
