The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has accepted responsibility for the leakage of some of the BECE examination papers.
WAEC cancelled 5 papers in the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) after they realized the questions have been leaked and was circulating on various social media platforms especially Whatsapp.
Agnes Tei Cudjoe, Head of Public Relations at WAEC told Kwami Sefa Kayi on Thursday’s edition of ‘Kokrokoo’, that as a government body in charge of exams, “we take ultimate responsibility” for the leakage and we are conducting investigations to find out where the leakage came from.
She said even though the re-take of the cancelled papers is going to be difficult for the students, “we appeal to teachers and parents to support them to prepare for the papers. We pledge to ensure that it doesn’t happen again”.
