2022 WASSCE: WAEC cautions 34 schools over examination malpractices


The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has cautioned some thirty-four (34) schools in the ongoing 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) across the country.

In a second update on the conduct of the 2022 WASSCE for School Candidates, WAEC said, caution letters have been written to 34 schools following tip offs and reports from intelligence sources about schemes from those schools to ensure that their candidates cheat during the ongoing WASSCE.

The schemes include;


1. Payment of sums of money by candidates to teachers/school authorities ostensibly to induce Supervisors, Invigilators to compromise.

2. Predetermined arrangements to have subject tutors solve questions and distribute solutions in various forms to the candidates.

3. Allowing candidates to carry relevant textbooks/pamphlets into the examination rooms.

The schools have been cautioned that their schools/centres would be derecognised if malpractices were reported in those places during the examination.

Two schools i.e Great Dafco SHS and Supreme SHS were relocated to the WAEC Hall, Kumasi to continue with their papers.

According to WAEC, this forms part of efforts to keep the public well-informed, by giving periodic updates to its stakeholders through reliable media platforms on the conduct of the ongoing WASSCE for School Candidates, 2022.
