The West African Examination Council (WAEC) said some secondary school principals and invigilators collude to aid examination malpractices.

Responding to allegation that question papers of the ongoing 2018 exams had been leaked to candidates prior to their exam dates, WAEC said no case of leakage had been established since the beginning of the examination.

A statement by the council said, “Our monitoring and investigations of the ongoing examination have established the fact that certain school principals, invigilators, supervisors and candidates, who had succeeded in smuggling mobile phones and other electronic devices into the examination hall, snap the question papers after the examination must have commenced and forward to their criminal collaborators, who in turn provide solutions to the questions and send to their subscribers via rogue websites, sms, WhatsApp and other social media.

“Leakage can be said to have occurred when the question papers get into hands of individuals, who are not supposed to have them before the time scheduled on the timetable.”
