The West African Examination Council has commenced investigations into the 2022 Withheld WASSCE results of some schools and students.
Candidates, who took part in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates, 2022 and had their results withheld due to alleged involvement in examination irregularities, were invited to the WAEC Regional Offices where they wrote the examination.
The invitation was to assist the Council to conclude its investigations into the alleged irregularities. Candidates who failed to attend the regional office for investigation will find themselves wanting on the final determination of their results’ fate.
Below is the full list of all schools and names of all students who had either their entire results withheld or just a paper or two withheld.

The entire results of some 518 candidates have also been cancelled for sending mobile phones into the examination hall.
The entire results of some 117 candidates have also been withheld pending the conclusion of investigations into alleged cases of impersonation detected during the examination.
The scripts of some other candidates from 179 schools in certain subjects are being scrutinised for reported cases of collusion.
