The entire results of 401 candidates suspected to have been involved in various examination

The withheld results will be released or canceled as soon as the Council concludes its

The Council wishes to advise members of the public to be on the alert for fraudster who
contact candidates with the promise of upgrading their results for a fee. We wish to assure
all stakeholders that the Council’s results database is well secured, as such all forged results
can be detected by the confirmation/verification system which has been made available to
institutions and organizations.
Institutions and organizations are therefore advised to always authenticate results presented
