According to the Head of Public Affairs of the Council, Agnes Teye Cudjoe, the examination body has put in place a number of measures to “guarantee test security.”

“These include collaboration with the National Intelligence Bureau, NIB, to monitor the printing of question papers, working closely with a number of security agencies to track and arrest dealers and operators of rogue websites, an inspection of all depots nationwide and depots that needed further fortification have been duly attended to.”

“Serialisation of some question papers, movement of question papers from strong rooms to depots in batches, creation of additional depots for the storage of confidential materials to ensure that the depots are located close to schools to prevent the situation where schools start late or question papers are released to them early.

“Use of number combination padlocks in addition to ordinary padlocks for all security bags containing question paper packets and these combination padlocks you cannot open them unless the codes are sent to the depot keepers.

“There will be continued surveillance of these schools by the Council’s team of inspectors and security personnel in the course of the examinations.”

According to her, WAEC had observed that “scammers are using the past question papers of WAEC to advertise their websites and their activities,” and advised the candidates to focus on their books and not to be led astray by such groups.

β€œWe urge them to be vigilant, refrain from taking their mobile phones into examination halls, and carry out their duties as expected. They should not be agents of malpractices as unfortunately is the case sometimes.”

β€œLet us be careful not to create unnecessary fear and panic among candidates. This could also send wrong signals on the conduct of the examination to the international community.”

She also appealed to the media to refrain from putting out “unverified information” on the conduct of the examination.

She said WAEC would continue to carry out its mandate and appealed to all stakeholders to support the Council for incident-free examination.
