The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) cautioned all candidates writing the 2021 WASSCE not to rely on rogue websites parading that they have leaked papers for sale.
WAEC also cautioned the public about has false information about the ongoing WASSCE. The council added that such information has the ability to tarnish the integrity of the examination, its outcome and hurt the future of the candidates.
Head of National Office at WAEC, Mrs. Wendy Enyonam Addy-Lamptey advised all candidates of the WASSCE 2021 to be extra careful so that they are not deceived by the rogue websites and their activities which turn their attention away from their books.
“We advise all candidates who have joined such platforms to exit from them immediately and concentrate on their studies,” she added.
