The cases are currently being investigated, and reports of the investigations will be presented to the appropriate Committee of the Council for determination in due course.

It is important to note that the act of examination malpractice is a serious offense and will not be tolerated by the Council. As such, those involved in such acts should desist from it in the future. It is also important for candidates to ensure that they prepare adequately for their examinations and shun any form of examination malpractice.

Candidates who sat for the examination can check their results by visiting the official WAEC website at www.waecdirect.org. It is important for candidates to note that the website is the only official platform for checking WAEC results, and as such, they should avoid any other websites or individuals claiming to be able to check results on their behalf.

In conclusion, the release of the WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2023 – First Series results is a step forward in the educational sector of West Africa.
