The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has released results for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The examination body released the result on Monday.
Speaking at a briefing on Monday, WAEC’s Head of National Office, Patrick Areghan, said: “Out of a total of 1,613,733 candidates that sat for the examination, the results of 262,803 candidates are being withheld “due to reports of cases of examination malpractice.”
If you are one of the candidates that participated in the examination, checking the result is very simple.
