WAEC causes Arrest of 4 Examiners over 2020 Scripts Circulation on Social Media

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has caused the arrest of four of its examiners who were careless with the scripts of candidates they were marking, leading to the circulation of some of the scripts and scores on social media.

The suspects, who are currently assisting the police with investigations, were traced to have allowed papers they were marking to be videoed, snapshot, and circulated on social media where the marks of the candidates were displayed together with the index numbers and centre codes.

The examiners were picked up at Adukrom, Cape Coast, Kasoa, and Accra, where they were marking the papers.

The examination body condemned the act and called on all examiners to be diligent and protect the personal data of the candidates being entrusted to them as the law frowned on making them public without authority.

Briefing the Daily Graphic, the Head of the Public Relations of WAEC, Mrs. Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, explained that before the examiners were considered, it was made clear to them that “the attendance mark sheets, scripts and marking schemes are at every stage security materials and must be treated as such.”

She added that as part of the engagement, “the scripts, marking schemes and attendance mark sheets should be kept under lock and key anytime an examiner is not working on them.”

Mrs. Teye-Cudjoe said such incidence should not happen at all and so even though few, “we do not take kindly to that and wish to caution the examiners not to divulge information of candidates as contained in the letter engaging them as examiners.”

She reminded them that whatever was in their possession was confidential and should not be left at the disposal of their family members, describing it as unacceptable and unfortunate.

Briefing

Mrs Teye-Cudjoe said during the briefing before the commencement of the marking, “we told them that they should not allow even their wards to total the marks of the candidates.”

She explained that because the index numbers and centre codes were in the snapshots and the video, it was easier for WAEC to trace to the origin of the shots, “and that is how we were able to trace them.”

Mrs Teye-Cudjoe explained that the examiners expressed surprise at what had happened because they did not know what happened and through investigations, it was realized that in some cases, the shots were taken by a grandchild or a nephew-in-law.

Mrs Teye-Cudjoe cautioned examiners to respect the terms of engagement and not to be careless with scripts entrusted to them, reminding them that first step under the current situation, all those examiners had been blacklisted and the scripts withdrawn from them.

She explained that the WAEC was able to identify them based on its post examination monitoring, adding that the council was alarmed at the current development.

Prosecution

Adding his voice, the Head of Legal of WAEC, Rev. Victor Brew, said those examiners would be handed over to the police to be charged appropriately and prosecuted under the Data Protection Act and with the WAEC internal rules and regulations in terms of guiding of the examination and marking rules.

He expressed concern that the current situation had made operators of the rogue website deceive students into thinking that they could change their marks for them, adding that “this is the extent to which some people are ready to go to impress others.”

How To Surprise🎁 Your Girlfriend👩‍👧On Her Birthday🎂

If you want to make your girlfriend feel special on her birthday, there are a lot of things that you can do. You don't have to spend a lot of money in order to make her feel loved and appreciated.

In fact, some of the best gifts are ones that come from the heart rather than being expensive or elaborate. Try one of these ideas for making your girlfriend feel special on her birthday:

Do something she has wanted to do for a long time.

Here are some ideas:

  • Go for a morning jog with her at the park.
  • Volunteer at the animal shelter together, cleaning cages and feeding dogs or cats. If you have kids, you could also bring them along when they're old enough to help out as well! This will be a great bonding experience for everyone involved!
  • Take her on an adventure in nature like hiking up a mountain or exploring caves nearby (if there are any). It's important that you plan ahead so she doesn't get hurt while trying these activities though! Also, make sure they aren't too strenuous since women tend to not have as much energy as men do even if they look good doing it too 😉

Go somewhere she has always wanted to go.

As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you take your girlfriend somewhere she has always wanted to go, but never had the time. This can be anything from a trip to the beach or concert to an amusement park or weekend getaway at a fancy hotel. The point is for you both to enjoy yourselves and have fun together!

If you want to do something really special for your lady love on her next birthday, book tickets for her favourite band taking over the town in two weeks—but don't tell her about it yet! This will keep her on her toes during their concert date and make her feel loved after all this effort from you!

Take her on an unconventional date.

A unique date can be the perfect way to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday. When you take a girl out for the first time, you have to impress her and show her that you are not just any guy.

If she's never been to the place where you're taking her for dinner or drinks, then it'll definitely leave an impression on your woman.

You don't have to go overboard with this one; just try something new and exciting! Even if what you choose is not extravagant or expensive, she will appreciate that special effort was made in order for her enjoyment - even more so when she realizes that all other guys wouldn't bother doing such things for their girlfriends' birthdays (or at all).

Get her a thoughtful gift.

When you're looking for the perfect birthday gift for your girlfriend, it's important to keep in mind that she will actually use and appreciate what you get her. A thoughtful gift is one that is special to you, but also something she will appreciate. You can take this a step further by making the gift yourself—this shows that you put a lot of thought into it!

A few ideas:

  • Paint her favourite picture of herself on canvas (or another medium) using watercolours or acrylics
  • Make a scrapbook filled with photos of your favourite memories together and write captions as captions were written back when people still wrote on paper instead of computers (which means they're handwritten)

Spend more time with her than you usually do.

As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. This is especially true when it comes to your girlfriend of four years who has been feeling neglected lately and has been complaining that she wants more time with you.

You could take her out for a fancy dinner or buy her a gift, but those are all things that have been done in the past by other people and they might not be as special to her as they once were. Instead, why not spend more time together?

Spend more time with her than you usually do. Make sure that each day you spend some quality one-on-one time with her before bedtime so that she knows how much she means to you—and how much fun she can be!

Do something out of the ordinary for the two of you.

  • Do something out of the ordinary for the two of you.
  • Go for a walk in the park, go for a hike, or get a babysitter and go to a movie.
  • Take your girlfriend to an art gallery or museum and look at all the paintings together.
  • Go to an amusement park that she's never been to before (but don't forget her birthday present).
  • Go see a comedian perform live with your girlfriend so that he can make jokes about how old you both are!

Bring her flowers or a small gift when she least expects it.

Flowers are a classic gift that any woman would love to receive on her birthday. The most important thing to know is what kind of flowers she likes best, so do some research and make sure you know your girl's favourite flower before you go out and buy it.

If you're not sure, ask her friends or family members what they think she would like.

Another thing you can do with flowers is getting creative with the presentation. You could wrap them up in cellophane and place them in a small box filled with tissue paper or put them in a vase and bring that to her house.

This can be done by asking the florist for help if you aren't sure how to arrange them yourself!

Don't forget to include a card or note explaining why they're special: "Happy Birthday" or some form of gratitude might be enough depending on how well you know each other at this point (if not yet).

Give her a private dance party.

If you want to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday, then the best way is to invite her over for a private dance party.

You could play some of her favourite songs, or even make up a song that describes how much she means to you. You can even put on some fancy clothes and dance with her. The most important thing is to make it special because after all, this is the woman who has been by your side since the beginning.

If she doesn't like dancing and prefers to sit back and watch others do their thing, then just make sure that she feels comfortable watching from afar before joining the fun!

Bring back an inside joke or happy memory from your relationship.

One of the best ways to surprise her is by bringing back an inside joke or happy memory from your relationship.

The best way to bring back a happy memory is by showing her something that reminds you both of that memory, like photos or videos. You can also share stories about how funny it was, and how much fun you had together.

For example, if she always laughs when you say “I love dinosaurs” in a really annoying voice, then saying “I love dinosaurs” in your most annoying voice would be a great way to surprise her on her birthday!

You can make your girlfriend feel special without spending too much money

You can make your girlfriend feel special without spending too much money.

Spending time with her and doing something she has always wanted to do is one of the best ways to surprise your girlfriend on her birthday. You can also surprise her by buying her a thoughtful gift.

To make this gift special, you can add a personal touch that not everyone else will have thought of. For example, if your girlfriend likes chocolate then you could buy her some chocolates but add a personal message inside each box so that only they know what it says.

Conclusion

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to show how much you care about your girlfriend. If you want to do something special for her birthday, just think about what she likes and try to make it happen.
