The West African Examination Council has disclaimed any association with a website claiming to provide online classes for potential candidates of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
The exam body further indicated that it has only one official e-learning portal for candidates seeking instructions and recommendations on examination questions, adding that the unknown website may be aimed at capturing the personal information of unsuspecting persons.
This was disclosed on Wednesday in a statement signed by the council’s acting head of public affairs, Moyosola Adesina, a copy of which was obtained by PUNCH Online.
The statement read in parts, “The attention of the West African Examination Council has been drawn to a website purporting to offer online classes for prospective WASSCE candidates.
“We want to state that the Nigeria National Office of the West African Examination Council has no affiliation or connection with the site.”
The statement further advised that “for candidates seeking instructions and recommendations on approaching and tackling examination questions, they should visit the council’s e-learning portal” for “accurate and reliable information.”
