The West African Examination Council (WAEC), the examination body that organises the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), has disclosed that the purported Mathematics question paper circulating on social media is fake.
The leaked mathematics question paper aka expo for WAEC which starts today, has been circulating online since Sunday according to reports.
A social media user, Olusegun Ajayi shared the reportedly leaked Mathematics question paper stating: “WAEC maths paper scheduled for today has leaked since weekend according to sources. See the paper here. What kind of a country is this for God’s sake??? I hope the people responsible will be investigated and punished as appropriate.“
However, after another user called the attention of WAEC to the leaked mathematics question papers, the examination body denied saying: “This is fake. Scammers do this every year. Only gullible candidates fall prey.“
WAEC is not the only examination body battling with the problem of leaked examination question papers. JAMB and NECO are also facing the same problem yet no concrete action has been taken to nip it in the bud. The government needs to declare a state of emergency in the education sector.
