The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) will henceforth cancel the entire results of candidates who cheat in more than one subject.
The council said in a statement at the end of the council’s 55th Nigeria Examinations Committee meeting, that it had observed the indictment of some candidates for malpractice in more than one subject in the November/December, 2012 Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The meeting held from April 15 to April 17 in Lagos.
“In order to check the ugly trend, the committee subsequently decided that the sanction in the council’s rules and regulations should be reviewed.
“It is clear that there is an urgent need to review the rule on such cases from cancellation of subject result to cancellation of entire results,” it said.
“Members believed that if the principal of a school decides that examination malpractice should not be allowed in his or her school, incidences of malpractice will be very minimal.’’
Subjects of irregularities, special and clemency will be posted on the council’s website.
