The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has initiated the 76th meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) to deliberate on cases of malpractice and irregularities stemming from the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates.
This announcement was made through the official X handle of the body on Tuesday.
In a related development, WAEC appointed Dr. Amos Josiah Dangut as the Head of the Nigeria National Office, according to a report by The PUNCH.
Back in August, WAEC initially released the results of the 2023 WASSCE. However, the outcomes of 262,803 candidates were held back due to reported instances of examination malpractice.
In light of this, the body has reassured candidates that information regarding their results will be communicated once the NEC meeting concludes its deliberations.
“The 76th Meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) to consider & decide on the malpractice/irregularity cases arising from the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2023 begins today,” the post read.
