due to the following reason:

- Smuggling of mobile phones into the examination halls by candidates awaiting solutions from platforms they have made payments to
- Snapping of question papers at some centres and posting same on various WhatsApp platforms.
The 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) has been marred with the leakage of some papers on social media.
What Should I do After the cancellation of Physics papers?
As a further step to safeguard the integrity of the examination, the Council has put in place the following measures:
(1) Strict internal controls and compliance by all staff to the Security Regulations of the Council.
(2) Increased inspection and monitoring at the various centres. Additionally, the following schools in respect of which tip-offs were received on intents to cheat are being closely monitored for evidence to validate the claims:
(3) Withdrawal of some supervisors and invigilators from providing services for the Council pending further sanctioning.
(4) Scrutiny of scripts of schools where cheating has been reported. Where mass cheating is established in centres, the appropriate sanctions would be applied.
(5) Continued tracking of rogue websites and social media cartels in collaboration with security agencies.
