The latest information reaching www.nigeriaschool.com.ng today is that The West African Examination Council (WAEC) management said very very soon they will stop the registration of external students by schools.
The coordinator of WAEC in Plateau, Mr Basil Inyang, made this announcement at a stakeholder’s forum on “Eradication of Examination Malpractice’’, organised by the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Jos on
Tuesday, 11th December 2012.
They came to an agreement that once a student failed the waec examination, such said student would not be allowed to write the next coming examination (This is not serious? Yes, i know you guys were drinking and eating when you made that statement. But students, it is time to SIT UP!)
They coordinations said and I quote.
“We shall soon cancel the registration of external candidates by secondary schools in Nigeria.
” The reason behind this, is because some students look for special (miracle) centres to register for the examination, constituting the bulk of examination malpractices.
” If a student fails the examination in the first sitting and wants to register for the second time, such a students must go back to their former school and register again,”
iyang said they waec managements are going through a serious reform to ensure examination malpractices is wiped out.
He challenged teachers to impact on students, the
virtue of effective knowledge, as most of them looked
up to their teachers as role models.
Iyang also advice the parents to instil in their children
good moral standards, advising parents to desist from
supporting their children partaking in examination malpractice.
And don’t forget, you will spend 21years in jail if you are caught engaging in Examination Fraud.
