The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says candidates who for some reasons are not satisfied with their 2020 WASSCE or BECE result can appeal to the Council 60 days after the release of the result for a review.
The Head of Test Administration Division, WAEC, Mr George K. Ohene Mantey announced this in an interview monitored by Georgeweb.org.
Speaking in the interview, the WAEC official said, the West African Examinations Council has a system in place for any candidate who is not satisfied with his/her results to appeal 60 days after the release of a result.
“Every candidate has the right to appeal if for some reasons is not satisfied with the results, that is available for any candidate,” he told host Winifred.
Commenting on claims that WAEC intentionally fail students for them to sit for Nov/Dec, Mr George said: “our existence is base on the conduct of an examination and we will under no circumstance fail or leak questions to candidates to tarnish our image, our processes are fair and transparent”.
According to the WAEC staff, the non-profit-making organization (WAEC) is never interested in any candidates failure as Ghanaian students claim their failure is the success of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
He consequently urged candidates who sat for the 2020 edition of the BECE and WASSCE for School Candidates to make an appeal at the WAEC office in their region for a review if not satisfied with the outcome of the result.
