By on

790742172_955621The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has cancelled Government 1&2 examination papers after “routine inspections” revealed that the secrecy of papers before examination date, have been “compromised”, a statement issued in Accra has said.

The Examination Council which is conducting the May- June 2013 West African Senior School Examinations (WASSCE) said they had found students with “materials” that suggested papers had been leaked.

Mrs. Agnes Cudjoe, Principal Public Affairs Officer who signed that statement said, WAEC “regrets” this uncomfortable measure.

Nonetheless, it needed “to demonstrate its abhorrence of examination malpractices” and to instill “moral uprightness” in students.

The examination papers which were taken on 22nd April 2013, will now be re-administered on 17th May 2013 at 9:00am.

The statement has also asked Heads of Schools to make arrangements to address the “inconvenience” it had “caused” to innocent “stakeholders”.

The Council said it was investigating the malpractices and will soon come out with findings.
