WAEC withdraws certificates of candidates involved in malpractice
Written by COMFORT 95.1FM on December 4, 2019
The list of withdrawn certificates of candidates believed to have engaged in malpractices during the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations conducted as far back as December 1992 and 1993 is now out.
Marching words with action, the West African Examinations Council published the list of the candidates accused of impersonating in the weekly bulletin of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board.
The bulletin noted that to address the challenge of impersonation in examinations, the Council was partnering the National Identity Management Commission to ensure candidates’ register for their National Identity Number.
It said WAEC has put machinery in place to test run the new registration regime for the 2020 UTME, using the National Identity Number, to have a seamless registration.
