He told Citi News that WAEC needed to clear the air for students who could use AI to cheat in the exam.

WAEC withheld test results of candidates from 235 schools believed to have cheated using AI in the 2023 WASSCE.

The council too canceled the topic results of 3,647 candidates for bringing foreign material.

The results of 839 candidates were canceled due to possession of mobile phones in the examination halls.

WAEC also took similar action after discovering cheating in the 2023 BECE exams.

Overall, this year's results indicate significant improvement; they are the best in the past four years, according to WAEC's performance statistics.

In terms of numbers, 448,674 candidates sat for the exam, of which 212,453 were men and 236,221 were women from 975 schools.

This reflects an increase of 5.8% from the 2022 entry figure of 422,883. In addition, at least 0.75% (3,404 candidates) were reported absent from the exam.
