After diligent deliberations, It approved that the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Entire Results (CER) be cancelled, while subject results of those involved in proven cases which attract Cancellation of Subject Results (CSR), be similarly cancelled.

According to the communique, The decisions of the Committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates and schools will be duly informed by the Council.
In addition, the Committee because of the high incidence of schools writing on the chalkboard for their students to copy during the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2016 decided that if a school is warned for aiding and abetting cheating three times within a period of five years, it would be de-recognised.
