The West African Examinations Council has withheld the results of a total of 1,873 candidates who took the WASSCE for private candidates.
According to a statement issued by WAEC, the candidates are alleged to have been involved in various examination malpractices.
The Council has, however, released results of 117, 306 candidates who took the exams and assured to release the rest as soon as the council concludes investigations on the withheld results.
The council also cautioned the Public on the activities of fraudsters who contact candidates with the promise of altering their results for a fee payable through mobile money transfer.
The council added  that all forged results can be detected by the confirmation of the verification system.
