30. Under no circumstance should the answer sheet be folded or crumpled or damaged. The
computer will reject such answer sheets.
31. Candidates are further asked to note that since The West African Examinations Council
processes over three million answer sheets per year, it is quite impossible for each one to
be given individual human scrutiny. It is therefore the clear responsibility of the
candidate to complete his Objective Answer Sheet exactly as described in these
instructions.
SPECIAL WARNING ON STARTING AND ENDING A PAPER
32. When question papers are given out, no candidate should start work before the order to
start is given. Furthermore, when the “stop work” order is given, candidates should
immediately put down their pens or pencils.
Any candidate found working on a paper before the order to start work is given or
found still writing when the order to stop work is given, commits
an irregularity and will be penalized accordingly.
SPECIAL WARNING ON CENTRE ARRANGEMENT
33. Candidates must present their Admission Notices at the Centre assigned to them.
Candidates who do not present their Admission Notices may not be allowed to write the
examination.
34. Candidates must write the examination at centres assigned to them by WAEC only.
Candidates who write the examination at centres not assigned them may not get their
result(s) in those papers.
SPECIAL WARNING ON THE USE OF CALCULATORS
35. Programmable calculators are not permitted for the examination.
SPECIAL WARNING ON MOBILE PHONES
36. Under no circumstance should mobile phones be brought into the examination hall.
Where a candidate is found with a mobile phone or any other electronic communication
device in the examination hall, the entire results of the candidate shall be withheld
pending the cancellation of his/her entire results by the appropriate Committee of
Council.
