Accra, Aug. 10, GNA – The West Africa
Examination Council (WAEC) has refuted rumours that it has released the 2017
Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

It said its systems had been hacked and fake
results had been posted to their servers and that the cyber security team was
currently working on the problem.

A statement signed by Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe,
the Head of Public Affairs of WAEC, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, said
for this reason, the results would be delayed up to September 30 or later.

It said the Council wanted to inform members
of the public, especially candidates, to beware of imposters who promised to
change examination results for a fee.

“Candidates are to note that all WAEC results
will be well secured and can be authenticated and that persons with forged
results will be exposed,” the statement said.

It said 289,210 candidates entered for the
examination, which was 5.45 per cent higher than the 2016 candidature of
274,262.

The 2017 entry figure was made up of 147,591
(51 per cent) males and 141,619 (49 per cent) females and examination was
conducted for 916 participating schools, the statement said.

A total of 1,732 (0.60 per cent) of the
candidates who registered were absent from the examination.
