The Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC), of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) at the end of its 62nd meeting in Lagos, released a communique on the sanctions and decisions it has taken concerning all established cases of examination malpractice recorded during the conduct of the 2016 May/June examination.
According to the communique released, entire results of candidates found in proven cases of examination malpractice would be cancelled. Similarly, candidates involved in proven cases of malpractice in a particular subject will have the result for that subject cancelled.
The communique also mentioned that some candidates would be disqualified from registering for WAEC examinations for a number of years.
Schools indicted for exam malpractice will be de-recognised; the principal of such school reported to the ministry of education for disciplinary actions and any supervisor involved will be blacklisted.
The communique also added that any school warned against exam malpractice for up to 3 times within a five-year period will automatically be de-recognised.
