The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the 2019 West African Senior School Certificate Examination results with those of 48,855 candidates withheld by the Council.

In a statement signed by Head of Public Affairs, Agnes Teye Cudjoe, the Council explained that it was waiting for conclusions of investigations into the 48,855 withheld results for various cases of examination malpractices detected during and after the conduct of the examination.

“The withheld results of candidates will be cancelled if found culpable, or released if otherwise,” it said.

“The Council will dispatch the results to the schools and candidates are advised to contact their heads of schools for their results, but the Council has hosted the results online and candidates who so desire may access their results at the Council’s website,” it urged.
