WAEC denies leakage of WASSCE Maths paper

The West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) has denied leakage of its Core Mathematics paper in the ongoing 2015 West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
According to WAEC, since they have not received any report from their officials at the various schools; no investigation can be carried out into the said allegations.There have been media reports of a syndicate leaking examination papers to individuals and schools at a fee.

The syndicate is said to be made up of some teachers and a WAEC official.

Social media has been buzzing with the news that the core mathematics papers which was written a few days ago were among the leaked papers.

This has raised concerns among some students and parents who fear WAEC will cancel the paper.

But speaking to Citi News, the Principal Public Affairs Officer of WAEC, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe dismissed the reports and insisted, “the paper did not leak before it was written.”

She assured the general public that there will be no cancellation of the core mathematics paper and neither will students have to retake that exam.

“They should be rest assured that the paper is not going to be cancelled because we have not received any reports of leakages from our officers on the field so the examination is going to continue as scheduled and the Maths paper is not going to be cancelled,” she stressed.

According to her, “if there were any reports like that, I am sure we would have received them by now so we are not even going to think about that.”

There have consistently been reports of leakage of examination questions which has raised questions over the credibility of the WASSCE.

Agnes Teye-Cudjoe however said mechanisms have been put in place to check such practices and offenders will be prosecuted and punished accordingly.
