No BECE results for 19 for using mobile phones


The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released provisional results of the 2019 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE). However, the entire results of 19 candidates have been cancelled because they brought mobile phones to halls during the exams held in June.

Subject results of 173 candidates have also been cancelled as they brought foreign materials to the exams halls. WAEC is also looking into the subject results of 2,497 candidates.

“The withheld subject results will either be released or cancelled as soon as the Council concludes its investigations,” a statement issued on Thursday said. The exams were held from Monday, June 10 – 14.

A total of 517,331 candidates made up of 263,602 males and 253,729 females sat the exams.But 5,320 were absent though they registered. The results have been despatched to the various schools through the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Directors of Education.

They are all, however, hosted online and candidates who desire have been asked to access them, a situation a group, CUTS Ghana, has kicked against.
