Nov/Dec 2019 Candidates turned away over Lateness

Share This Post

Some Nov/Dec 2019 candidates who are to sit for the French paper today [Wednesday], September 4, 2019 have been refused admittance to the examination hall, GhEntertainers.com understands.

This comes after candidates arrived minutes later for the examination that was scheduled to commence at exactly 8.30am.

Speaking with the mother of one of the candidates, whom, the development had already been reported to, she noted that her ward arrived at the WAEC Heights centre in Airport Residential Area, Accra, at 8.35am but was denied entry.

“We stay at Amasaman so she set off before 6.00am, however, because of the vehicular traffic situation on the route, she arrived at the centre at 8.35am,” she said.

“Upon arrival, a lady-invigilator told her she won’t be allowed to write the test because she is late. Together with other candidates who arrived later, they were instructed to leave the compound while their colleagues write; they are now stranded despite paying for the examinations,” she reiterated.

When quizzed about the number of candidates affected, she noted that they are about twenty (20).

All efforts to get in touch with the West African Examination Council (WAEC), to ascertain their awareness of the situation and whether the invigilator’s action falls within the examination body’s rules and regulations, have proved futile.

This comes after several calls placed to the WAEC PR unit ended abruptly, while others were unanswered.
