WAEC Set To Introduce E-Examination (Online Examination)

March 27, 2012 – WAEC Set To Introduce E-Examination

The Chairman of West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced that plans are underway to introduce e-examination to replace the current pen and paper form of writing the exams.

According to Nigerian Tribune, Prof. Jonas Sawyer made the announcement during a courtesy visit to the Minister of Education, Professor Ruqayyatu Ahmed Rufa’I as part of activities marking the 60th anniversary of the council.

According to him, the council has plans to have computer activated examinations, “so that we can move away from pen and paper. All these have been lined up and we are hoping that within the next few years, WAEC will be very difficult to beat or compete with.”

He said the council would do all it could to ensure that the statement of WAEC was maintained and the integrity of its certificate held at the highest level.

Good idea, but can any project based on computer and electricity succeed in the present day Nigeria? We hope this is not another “Owanbe” project that will not be of any benefit to Nigeria’s educational system.

    Do you think that can work well in our own nigeria due to the fact that we are having the problem of power supply, and if you can aplead to those that are corodinating our country to provide us adequate supply of good electricity tthat, would have been better because i love how you want to start doing it, and that will fasting the checking of result. The ideal is good and accepted by me.

    This will not work for the following reasons:(1)the rural area where there is no power supply at all will suffer it(2)there is no certainty of the constant electricity even in urban area(3)it is not every student that can afford the computer system(4)it is not every student that are computer literate unless if the study of the computer could be imputed into the Nigerian educational curriculum lately.
