WAEC Set To Eliminate Paper-based Exams In Nigeria

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has said it plans to ditch paper-based exams in Nigeria.

This announcement was made by Dr. Amos Dangut, Head of the National Office for WAEC, during a recent monitoring of the ongoing West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Abeokuta.

Dr. Dangut, alongside the Permanent Secretary of Ogun State’s Ministry of Education, Mrs. Mariam Oloko, said the council aims to equip approved examination centres across the country with electronic devices to facilitate computer-based testing (CBT).

“We are looking ahead,” Dr. Dangut explained. “In the future, schools with the necessary facilities for CBT will be able to offer exams on computers. Those schools that aren’t quite prepared yet can continue using the traditional pen-and-paper method.”
