WAEC gives deadline to release 2021 WASSCE candidates results

The West African Examinations Council says if too many errors are not detected in the marking of the 2021 WASSCE for School scripts, candidates results will be released 45 days after the conduct of the last paper of the examination.

A staff of WAEC Monday told EducationWeb.com.gh his outfit has put measures in place to drastically reduce the waiting days for the release of the WASSCE results to at least 45 days instead of the long usual 60 to 90 days.

“WAEC corrects all errors detected in the marking of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination scripts, so if there are too many errors or mistakes then the release of the results might delay a little,” he told EducationWeb.

According to the WAEC official, the duration for the marking of the 2021 WASSCE for School scripts and candidates results release date will be determined by the RPCC, a committee he said is under the auspices of the Council.

He said 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results when out will be hosted online at the non-profit-making organization results checking portal at https://ghana.waecdirect.org/ for candidates access.

‘WAEC before the release of the results will report exams malpractice cases recorded during the conduct of the WASSCE and those detected in the marking of the scripts to the Ghana Examinations Committee,” he added.

This the Council member said is because some candidates who sat for the examination were caught with foreign materials and mobile phones, an act the West African Exams Council has said is the worst form of examination fraud.

The Committee chaired by the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa he noted will approve for the necessary sanctions to be taken against candidates found culpable

“Teachers involved in malpractice and misconduct during the administration of the national examination will also be reported to the Ghana Education Service (GES) for administrative sanctions,” the WAEC official told EducationWeb.

The 2021 edition of the WASSCE commenced on Monday, August 16, 2021, with the administration of the Visual Art project work and ended smoothly on Friday, October 8, 2021, despite cases of questions leakages and malpractice.

A total of 446,321 representing 221,437 males and 234,884 females from 965 schools (651 public schools and 314 private schools) sat for the just-ended international examination administered at 763 exams centres nationwide.
