The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has assured Ghanaians that their results database is secure despite a technical hitch on Friday.

According to the Council, one of its platforms used for checking the results (ERESULTS.WAECGH.ORG) experienced a technical hitch on December 10, resulting in the change of grades of some candidates.

“This resulted in subjects which originally had Grade B3 with the interpretation, GOOD, being changed to Grade A1 with the interpretation GOOD still showing, clearly indicating an error,” a statement put out by WAEC on their official site read.

The Council added that the system, following the challenge, was shut down and the problem was resolved.
