The Head of National Office (HNO) of the WAEC, Mr. Olu Adenipekun, announced this while releasing results of the Nov/Dec diet of the examination on Friday at the WAEC national headquarters in Yaba, Lagos.
Adenipekun said the results were withheld in connection with various cases of examination malpractice.
Speaking further, Adenipekun the results withheld represent 7.81 percent of the total number of candidates who sat for the examination.
He noted that the cases of malpractices were being investigated and that reports of the investigations would be presented to the appropriate committee of the council in due course, for consideration.
Adenipekun revealed that the committee’s decision would be communicated to the affected candidates thereafter.
Giving a further breakdown of the results, The HOD said that 176,621 candidates registered for the examination, out of which 172,699 sat for the tests, adding that of the figure, 88,290 were males, while 84,409 were females, representing 51.12 per cent and 48.88 per cent respectively.

“Such errors are being corrected by the council to enable the affected candidates to get their results fully processed and released subsequently,’’ Adenipekun said.
