The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has asked the general public to ignore rumours circulating that it has officially released the final results of candidates who sat for the 2018 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE).
There are widespread rumours on social media that the results of the 2018 BECE results of school candidates have been released by the examination body.
Although WAEC has already released the results of the 2018 private school candidates, it said it is yet to release that of the school candidates.
“The West African Examinations Council wishes to inform its stakeholders that it is yet to release the results of the BECE for school candidates, 2018”, WAEC said in a statement signed by Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, Head of Public Affairs.
WAEC further said, “it will duly issue a statement announcing the release of the results after all post-examination processes have been completed.”
A total of 509,826 candidates from public and private basic schools across the country sat for the June 2018 BECE.
The figure was made up of 263,295 males and 246,529 females.
A total of 16, 060 schools participated in the exams.
