WAEC adopts CBT for WASSCE

For the Senior School Certificate Examination, the West African Examinations Council declared on Monday that it would no longer be using the paper-and-pencil test paradigm and would instead be using a computer-based exam style.

This is stated in a statement that was made public on Monday and was signed by Moyosola Adesina, the acting head of WAEC’s Public Affairs Unit.

The announcement stated that the innovation would begin in February 2024 with the administration of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination for independent applicants.

 “In line with global best practices, the Nigeria National Office of the West African Examinations Council wishes to inform the general public, and all its stakeholders, that it has concluded plans to migrate its WASSCE for Private Candidates Examination Diets from Paper and Pencil Test to Computer Based Examination,” the statement from the body partly read.
