WRONGFUL MENTION OF ACTION SECONDARY TECHNICAL SCHOOL, MADINA IN THE COUNCIL’S SECOND UPDATE

During the Council’s Second Update to the media on September 16, 2022, Action Secondary Technical School, Madina was wrongly cited as one of the schools caught engaging in Syndicate Cheating. The school that should have been named in the alleged case of Syndicate Cheating was Madina Senior High School, who were writing their examination at Action Secondary Technical School (ASTS). The Council deeply regrets any embarrassment caused to ASTS as a result of the error.

CAUTION

The Council is cautioning all stakeholders, especially candidates, to be on the alert and not fall prey to the activities of scammers who promise to upgrade results for a fee. Candidates are to note that all WAEC results are secured and can be authenticated using the results verification system or by downloading the WAEC QR Code. Institutions are also urged to always verify results presented to them to expose incidents of forgery.

From ICT Catalogue, all we can say is that we wish congratulations to all students who have so far checked their results and seen flying colours. Not also forgetting our most sincere gratitude to all stakeholders in the education sector.
