Yaya said, “From 2018 to 2020, seven of our public senior secondary schools were found to be involved in Examination Malpractice which led to their derecognition by the WAEC.

“Similarly in 2022, the Ministry received a fresh set of six schools that committed the same offence and they were also de-recognised with a penalty of N500,000 fee per school payable to WAEC.”NYSC portal

While lamenting the impact of de-certification on overall student performance in the final results of the 2022 Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations, Yaya stated that examination malpractice is currently the most serious challenge facing senior secondary schools in the state and must be addressed.

“The percentage of 2022 result was 55.6 percent as against 79.5 percent for 2021 and this is in connection with the examination malpractice recorded in six of our schools,” he added.

He warned all principals across schools to stay away from examination malpractice of any form, adding, “Any principal found wanting again in any form of Exams Malpractice will be seriously punished and the penalty should be paid by the school.”
