Examination malpractice, an educational dysfunction has plagued the West African Examination council into great losses as there seem to be leakage of Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) papers ahead of schedule every year.

This issue has gotten worse to the extent that some people boast of having the audacity to alter examination results on the council’s digital results checking and school placement systems.

Speaking to Ahenkan FM’s Maakye morning show hosted by Obuoba Ofori Amanfo, the Public relations officer for West African Examination council, Ghana, Mrs. Winifred Apiaw explained that they have put up measures to curb the situation of leakages repeating itself going forward.




Mrs. Winifred stated that claims made by people of having access to their systems to alter results which they call “upgrading of results” are all fake and that some fraudsters are going about playing tricks on desperate final year students to steal money from them.

She called on the society especially students to be vigilant not to fall into the trap of those fraudsters and encouraged them to desist from any examination malpractices during and after the Final year exam.





Concluding on her message, she urged all students to do the right thing by taking their education serious while having lessons in class in order not to face any consequences of examination malpractice in their final year examinations which may destroy their future.

Result upgrade scams keep flourishing in Ghana and Nigeria because students do not take their studies serious whiles nothing seems to be done by WAEC to arrest and persecute such elements. The end result is that students fail their exams and look for an easy way out.
