The West African Examinations Council wishes to inform its numerous publics that it has released provisional results of candidates who sat for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for Private Candidates, 2019. A total of 102,278 candidates made up of 51,935 males and 55,488 females sat for the examination. Out of those who initially registered for the examination, 5,145 of the candidates were absent.
The entire results of 753 candidates alleged to have been involved in various examination malpractices have been withheld pending conclusion of investigations into cases of malpractices. These malpractices include impersonation and bringing mobile phones into the examination hall.
The withheld results will be released or cancelled as soon as the Council concludes its investigations. Candidates may access their results online at www.waecgh.org.
The Council wishes to advise members of the public to be on the alert for fraudsters who contact candidates with the promise of upgrading their results for a fee payable through mobile money transfers. We wish to assure all stakeholders that the Council’s results database is well secured, as such all forged results can be detected by the confirmation/verification system which has been made available to institutions and organisations.
Institutions and organisations are therefore advised to confirm or verify results presented to them directly from the Council or access the confirmation/verification service online at the Council’s website. The results print-out can also be confirmed by scanning the encrypted QR Code on the print-out with a downloaded version of the “WAEC GH QR Code Reader”.
