Candidates whose results have been withheld in the 2023 WASSCE are frustrated because while their colleagues have gained admissions into tertiary institutions they are still at home not knowing their fate.
Seeking answers, GBCNEWS approached the Acting Controller of WEAC Sunyani, Victor E. K. Abiew who revealed the affected scripts have been re-graded and an observation made that the mode of answering questions followed the same trend.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) withheld the subject results of some Candidates from 235 schools throughout the country.
During an interaction with the Acting Controller of WEAC Sunyani, Victor E. K. Abiew, to find out what is next for the affected Candidates, he said the Examiners realized that the Candidates followed a similar trend resulting in answers that were the same.
Mr. Abiew noted the impossibility of students writing in the same pattern.
On the plight of the affected Candidates, he said the irregularities that occurred and the conduct of Candidates are not the doing of WAEC and should not be blamed.
He further emphasized that their mandate is to deliver questions to every Centre and see to it that Candidates are awarded the right results after the questions have been marked.
One of the affected Candidates, Gifty Amoasiwaa who spoke to GBCNEWS called on the authorities to resolve issues regarding their withheld subject papers as soon as possible.
GBCNEWS also spoke to some parents of the affected Candidates, Kofi Amoasi and Elizabeth Kroma.
They made a plea to WAEC to consider the difficulties the Candidates went through to prepare for the WASSCE and stressed that the deserved grades of Candidates must not be denied.
