September 21, 2019
After various successful raids on Special Rooms and Special houses for Examaniation Malpractice over the past few weeks, the Anti-Corruption Commission(ACC) has on Saturday 21st September 2019, embarked on a nation-wide monitoring of Examination Centers in the Western Area and several parts in the regions where candidates have been sitting to English Language in the ongoing 2019 Private WASSCE Examination.
The monitoring exercise discovered multiple incidents of Spying through Mobile Phones with both internal and external support provided to pupils to enable them cheat during the exam. A few arrests were made and exhibits seized as well. The Scorpions remain on standby while intelligence and investigations teams continue to monitor and collect evidence and provide timely support to the WAEC Authorities.
Below is a student who was caught taking the exam with all answers being remotely provided to her through her mobile phone. It is believed that many have been cheating to pass using this method.
The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) will continue to provide support to the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE), and the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to ensure integrity in public examinations.
