WAEC sends STRONG warning to 2021 BECE students on result upgrade


WAEC has sent a strong warning  to 2021 BECE students on the likely temptation to seek for illegal result upgrade. The warning from WAEC follows the investigations into cases of examination malpractice detected during the conduct of the examination which led to the cancellation of the Subject Results of 138 candidates for the offence of either bringing in foreign materials into the examination hall or colluding with other candidates.

WEAC also cancelled the entire results of 46 candidates for the offence of either sending mobile phones into the examination hall or impersonation. It also withheld the Subject Results of 148 candidates and the Entire Results of 109 candidates pending conclusion of investigations into various cases of alleged examination malpractice. Meanwhile, the scripts of candidates from 24 schools in certain subjects are undergoing scrutiny.

These decisions by WAEC and the poor 2021 BECE results obtained by some students may compel such candidates to seek fake result upgrading by scammers.

The withheld results of candidates may be cancelled or released based on the outcome of investigations.

WAEC has therefore advised 2021 BECE graduates whose results have just been released to desist from what it describes as ‘results upgrading’.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has disclosed that its results are fortified from any form of manipulation.  The WAEC result database is secured with 256-AES military-grade encryption and can not be hijacked or compromised by any group of individuals.

“The Council is cautioning all stakeholders to be wary of fraudsters who promise to upgrade results for a fee.  Candidates are to note that WAEC results are secured and can be authenticated,” the Council said on Monday.

Announcing the release of the 31st BECE School results, WAEC said the subject results of 138 candidates have been cancelled for the offence of either bringing in foreign materials into the exams hall or colluding with other candidates.
