The number of results which have been withheld pending further investigations marked 0.28% of the total candidature who sat for the BECE.

"The Council takes this opportunity to advise candidates to do independent work in the examination hall and to avoid seeking any form of illegal assistance as such acts would be detected and sanctions applied accordingly."

Most students can check their results from their school as results of the 15,185 schools have been sent to municipal and district directors of education for onward dispatch to the schools.

Other students can also visit the official WAEC website to access the results online.

The release also noted that "there are no failures in BECE" with the new grading system used by WAEC.
