WAEC ; WE ARE NOT YET READY TO ADOPT CBT NOW, SEE REASONS BELOW…

WAEC

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has revealed that it will not adopt the computer-based test (CBT) in the conduct of its examination.

 

This was made known by the Zonal Coordinator of the

examination body in Abuja, Yusuf Ari.

 

According to him, despite the fact that CBT has proven to

reduce examination malpractice, the board will still stick to

the old method because of the nature of its examination.

He mentioned that the council does not only conduct

examination in urban area but also rural areas unlike JAMB.

 

Again, the council conducts examination in over 80 subjects

with many of them having components. English Language

for instance, comes in three components, consisting of

practical, theory and or*l.

 

He however added that the council may consider the option

after adequate facilities such as sufficient computer

systems, steady power supply and other infrastructural

provisions are guaranteed.
