However, 215,149 of the 1,456,727 candidates’ results were withheld by the Examination Council.
In the Press briefing to announce the results, WAEC Head of the Nigeria National Office, Patrick Areghan disclosed that some results of candidates who sat for the exams were withheld due to examination malpractice.
Areghan explained, “The results of Two Hundred and Fifteen Thousand One Hundred and Forty-Nine (215,149) candidates, representing 13.98% of the total number of candidates that sat for the examination, are being withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice.
“The cases are being investigated and reports of the investigations will be presented to the appropriate Committee of the Council for determination in due course.
“The Committee’s decisions will be communicated to the affected candidates through their various schools.”
“Out of the total number of candidates that sat for the examination, One Million Four Hundred and Fifty-Six Thousand Seven Hundred and Twenty-Seven (1,456,727) candidates, representing 94.69% have their results fully processed and released while Eighty-One Thousand Seven Hundred and Eighteen (81,718) candidates, representing 5.31% have a few of their subjects still being processed due to some errors on the part of the candidates.
Efforts are, however, being made to speedily complete the processing to enable all the affected candidates get their results fully processed and released, subsequently.”
