WAEC compiles list of erring supervisors for sanctions

The West African Examinations Council WAEC is compiling names of supervisors who worked against the ongoing May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), for sanctions by relevant authorities. The council’s Head of Public Affairs Unit, MrDamianusOjijeogum, made the disclosure in Lagos.

According to him, investigations revealed that the supervisor’s photo-shopped previous examination papers and forwarded same to operators of rogue websites, who in turn, swindled gullible candidates. He said that `this cheating by any means’ could be described as examination leakage as being reported by some mass media. MrOjijeogu said that WAEC was deploying resources to introduce new techniques to protect its examinations, and solicited more support from members of the public to rid the education sector of examination malpractice.
