WASSCE, BECE Examination to go online – WAEC
The examining body for West Africa, WAEC has disclosed plans to digitize WASSCE, BECE examinations. This would mean candidates would take their examinations online.
This was disclosed at a press conference organized by the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) at the National Office of WAEC, in Accra.
“We are hoping that people would take their examinations online, but a lot would depend on our systems. We are working with the resources made available to us.”
Mrs Addy-Lamptey advised all gatekeepers to be particularly attentive in order to prevent leakage and cheating during this year’s prevailing WASSCE, noting that preventing examination malpractices was the duty of all stakeholders. The council’s projection of the WASSCE, BECE Online Examination is yet to be agreed on the year it would commence.
Meanwhile, the Head of the National Office of WAEC claims that all preparations for this year’s WASSCE have been completed.
Security has also been ramped up across the board, according to her.
