Examiners for the most recent Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), administered by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), have not received payment.
One of the WAEC examiners, Kwame Nsiah, revealed this when he demanded payment for recent work performed by the examiners.
“Teachers from various schools in various regions of the country are outsourced to mark test papers for WAEC,” Coordination began on November 25th, and marking was completed on December 14th claims Mr. Nsiah.
“The policy has always been that, once closing date is given, all scripts are taken no matter where you are.”
In a statement, the examiner stated: “It takes around two weeks to mark examination papers, following which payment is done right away.”
Payment ought to have been made two weeks before the end of Christmas, he added.
He said that the non-payment may be a factor in why the results haven’t yet been made public.
The examiner said, “We need our money.
According to the WAEC, the results for the BECE in 2022 have not yet been made public.
The Council has thus asked both students and the general public who are awaiting results to disregard rumors that are going around on social media that the results have already been announced.
In a statement made by the council, it was said, “The Council asks the public to dismiss all rumors circulating on social media suggesting that the results have been disclosed, among others.”
According to WAEC, “Wednesday, January 25, 2023 is the target date for the announcement of results for the BECE for both School and Private Candidates, 2022.”
