The results of 668 private candidates who took part in the September, 2016 West African Senior High School Certificates Examination (WASSCE) have been withheld for alleged involvement in various examination malpractices.
Some of the malpractices included taking in foreign materials into the examination rooms and impersonation.
According to Mrs Agnes Teye-Cdjoe, Deputy Director of Public Affairs, the results could only be released when the Council concluded its investigation into the allegations.
She said the provisional results of 128,707 candidates had been released and so they could access their results online.
Mrs. Teye-Cudjoe advised the public to be wary of activities of fraudsters promising candidates of bettering their result for a fee payable through mobile money transfer.
“Members of the public are assured that the Council’s results database is well secured. As such, all forged results can be detected by the confirmation system.”
She urged institutions and organisations to confirm or verify results presented to them directly from the Council, or access the confirmation service online on its website.
