The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), have agreed at a meeting with its underling, the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC), to punish those found guilty of examinational malpractices.
This was a decision made at the 62nd meeting of the organizations held recently in Lagos, where a communique was developed as a statement of intent.
Report says the organizations approved that the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Entire Results (CER) be cancelled, while subject results of those involved in proven cases which attract Cancellation of Subject Results (CSR), be similarly cancelled.
Other sanctions include barring a candidate for a number of years if found guilty of exam malpractice, while some schools and their administrative heads will be blacklisted if they are believed to have compromised standards.
These, and some other sanctions will be implemented without delay according to the communique.
