Investigation into Examination Irregularities: Call for Assistance from WAEC


The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is an educational body responsible for conducting examinations in Anglophone West African countries, including Ghana.

It is committed to ensuring that the examinations are conducted in a transparent and credible manner, with strict adherence to rules and regulations.

However, it has come to the attention of the Council that some candidates who participated in the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination for School Candidates in the Central and Ahafo/Bono/Bono East regions may have been involved in examination irregularities. Consequently, the Council has withheld the results of these candidates pending further investigations.

To this end, the Council is calling on the affected candidates to assist with investigations by visiting the Council’s Cape Coast branch office from 28th to 30th March, 2023, and Sunyani branch office from 28th to 31st March, 2023, respectively.

The purpose of the invitation is to enable the Council to conclude its investigations into the alleged irregularities, and to determine the appropriate course of action.

It is important to note that the invitation is extended to candidates who have had their results withheld due to alleged involvement in examination irregularities.

The Council has provided details on its website,, and candidates can click on the WITHHELD button for further information.

The Council also wishes to emphasize that the refusal of candidates to honour this invitation shall not preclude the Council from making a final determination on the cases.

This is in line with the Council’s commitment to ensuring the integrity of its examinations and upholding the principles of fairness and justice.
