WAEC to ban cheats from fu­ture ex­ams

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Nu­rudeen Oye­wole, La­gos

The Nige­rian Ex­am­i­na­tions Com­mit­tee (NEC) of the West African Ex­am­i­na­tions Coun­cil (WAEC) has man­dated the ex­am­i­na­tion body to ban for a num­ber of years, any can­di­date caught cheat­ing in its an­nual ex­am­i­na­tions.

This is one of the po­si­tions taken at the end of the 57th NEC meet­ing of WAEC held in La­gos. A com­mu­niqué is­sued af­ter the meet­ing noted that apart from the can­cel­la­tion of re­sults of cheats which has be­come the norm, such can­di­dates should be re­stricted from fu­ture ex­am­i­na­tions.

“In the course of con­sid­er­ing the var­i­ous re­ported cases of mal­prac­tice, the com­mit­tee en­dorsed ap­pro­pri­ate sanc­tions in all es­tab­lished cases of mal­prac­tice as pre­scribed by the rules and reg­u­la­tions gov­ern­ing the con­duct of the coun­cil’s ex­am­i­na­tions af­ter dili­gent de­lib­er­a­tions. It ap­proved that the en­tire re­sults of can­di­dates in­volved in proven cases which at­tract can­cel­la­tion of sub­ject re­sults be sim­i­larly can­celled”, the com­mu­niqué said in part.
