Estimated read time 2 min read

Ahead of the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination, BECE, the West African Examination Council, WAEC, has warned any student who’s been illegally registered to be prepared for disqualifications. The examination body said it has received reports of parents moving their wards to skip classes and register for the examinations.

According to WAEC, the reports indicated that the movement involves parents moving their wards from lower classes in private schools to public schools to register for the examinations.

“The Council’s attention has been drawn to some parents moving their wards in Basic Stage six, JHS 1, 2 and 3 in private schools to public schools to register for the examination.”

“This is against both the GES and WAEC regulations. The Council is presently investigating a number of such cases and the registration of such candidates would be annulled. Parents are urged not to traumatize their wards by such actions,” WAEC warned.

“The Council wishes to remind its stakeholders and candidates that the revised Rules and Regulations for dealing with cases of irregularity in the Council’s examinations which took effect in January 2023 will be put to use for the first time during this year’s examinations.”

There are 300,323 males and 300,391 females registered to sit for the examinations which commence on Monday, August 7, 2023.
