WAEC introduces CBT ahead of Nov 2024 WASSCE


West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on Wednesday, confirmed that candidates intending to write the November West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), will have the option of choosing between Computer Based Tests (CBT) and Paper Based Tests.

Head of National Office, WAEC, Nigeria, Dr Amos Dangut, revealed this in Ibadan while monitoring the ongoing WASSCE, along with some principal officers of the council.

He said that the examination body had successfully conducted the first edition of the computer-based West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), also known as CB-WASSCE in January/February.

According to him, private candidates writing WASSCE in November will have the opportunity of choosing between CB-WASSCE and paper-based test.

“The examination, held in January and February, yielded better performance compared to the previous year, with a significant decrease in malpractices from five per cent to 0.8 per cent.

“We are now gearing up for the upcoming private candidates’ examination in October and November, offering candidates the choice between the traditional pen and paper and the computer-based method,” Dangut said.
