The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has for the second time within the week, refuted claims that question papers for the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) have been leaked.
Some question papers have been popping up on social media, this week, as 517,332 of pupils across the country started writing the BECE from Monday, June 10. The examination is expected to come to an end, Friday, June 14 but has been riddled with alleged irregularities.
Reacting to the leakage allegations, Thursday, June 13, Public Relations Officer of WAEC Agnes Teye Cudjoe told 3FM News they themselves have been monitoring the situation and, so far, nothing suggests a leakage of the papers.
According to her, she has personally seen some examination questions on the internet purported to be leaked questions, but insisted they were false.
“I sighted quite a number of questions circulating on social media and none of the questions were the questions that were taken by the candidates.”
Mrs. Teye Cudjoe explained, she visited some of the examination centers to verify the claims made.
“I was at the exam center myself and I had the opportunity to look at the papers that was in progress and the questions that have been circulating on social media were not the questions that the candidates took.”
