- WAEC has downplayed claims of releasing the 2017 BECE results
- The council reveals that their website has been hacked
Officials of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) are warning 2017 candidates of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) against fake results.
WAEC has revealed that it has not released results of the 2017 results and that the recent claim that results have been released is due to a hack in the system which the council is currently looking into.
“Candidates are to note that all WAEC results will be well secured and can be authenticated and that persons with forged results will be exposed,” the statement signed by the head of public affairs, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe revealed.
What this means is that candidates wil only be able to access their results either on September 30 or after the set date.
Meanwhile, it has been documented that 289,210 candidates entered for the examination, which was 5.45 per cent higher than the 2016 candidature of 274,262.
