WAEC adopts CBT for SSCE



The West African Examination Council (WAEC) says it will now adopt a computer-based test (CBT) in conducting its Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) for private candidates.


The council, in a statement on Monday, said the innovation will begin with its 2024 SSCE to be held next February.


WAEC said the objective tests will be fully computer-based while the essay and test of practical papers will be hybrid.


For this, the council said questions will be delivered on screen and candidates will write answers on paper booklets.


 “Furthermore, the examination will be conducted in urban centres/cities and candidates with special needs have been factored into the pain,” WAEC added.


“Registration for the examination will commence on Monday, December 18, 2023.


“In order to enable candidates to familiarise themselves with the new examination platform, arrangements have been concluded for a mock examination to be conducted in February 2024, before the examination commences.


 “To this end, the council implores all prospective candidates to hone their computer skills and be fully prepared to embrace this innovation.


“As Africa’s foremost exam body, providing reliable educational assessment and encouraging academic and moral excellence, it is the vision of the council that, in the near future, all its exams will be delivered via the computer.”
