WAEC Listed What Might Cause Withheld or Cancelled Result

As the May/June examination is going on, students must be mindful of practices that might lead to their results being cancelled or withheld. It is not unusual to see students who want to take illegal routes to pass their exams. This route is most of the time through examination malpractice. Some of the actions against those students is to ensure these sets of students don’t have results.

Below are the forms of examination malpractice that WAEC frowns at:

  • Giraffing
  • Use of an unassigned booklet
  • Copy from each other or at one another
  • Smuggling of cribs, notes, textbooks and prepared materials into the examination hall
  • Bring in electronic devices such as mobile phones, smart wristwatches, unauthorized calculators, etc.
  • Writing notes, enclosing cash in scripts, seeking assistance of examiners
  • Submission of more than one worked script
  • Having inscriptions relating to the exam on the body
  • Multiple handwritings found in worked script
  • Insult/assault of examination officials
  • Starting the examinations before the scheduled time or writing after the examination has ended
  • Impersonation
  • Writing outside the examination hall
  • Writing with pencil

Because some students have done any of the above and escaped, it doesn’t mean you will scale through. It may be that doing any of this will get you into trouble. If I were you, I would ensure I abide by the rule. Most importantly, I will prepare for the exam with the desire to get As without any help from anywhere.
