WAEC Confirms Leaked Mathematics Questions
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) in reaction to report that its mathematics questions were leaked has confirmed that some of its supervisors actually leaked exam questions before the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) began on August 17.
This was revealed to news men by the Head of National Office (WAEC) Patrick Areghan on Wednesday during a monitoring exercise to some schools in Yaba, Lagos State.
Areghan, while confirming the story, stated that the culpable supervisors have been arrested, and he warned students not to indulge in malpractice.
“Students should not go about looking for anything they call expo. it is shameful, supervisors collecting question papers from WAEC are going somewhere to open the questions.
“Yesterday we caught one in Nassarawa. They don’t know that we have a way of detecting them. In Bauchi, we caught another, we detected it from here. In Port Harcourt a candidate did same thing, and was arrested,” He said.
Areghan statement is a sharp contrast to what the Head of Public Affairs (WAEC), Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, who told reporters that the answers in circulation which were believed to be leaked from the Mathematics subject written on Monday were fake.
