WAEC to name, shame students, other exam cheats

 

Candidates, staff and invigilators involved in exam malpractice during West African Examination Council (WAEC) examinations are in for big humiliation as the exam body has vowed to publish names of exam cheats.

WAEC said culprits, which may include students, staff, and invigilators would not be spared the council’s sledge hammer.

The examination body made this known yesterday, decrying the rising incidence of examination malpractice among students.

WAEC’s head, Public Affairs, Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, who made this disclosure in a statement said the decision to publish offenders was part of the 66th Nigeria Examinations Committee, NEC, of WAEC’s resolution held at Ogba, Lagos.

In his words; “Candidates, invigilators and supervisors caught aiding and abetting examination malpractice, WAEC, ANCOPSS and the States Ministry of Education will publish their names to serve as a deterrent for others.

 

“States Ministry of Education and school principals are to check the ugly trend by looking at the calibre and integrity of teachers nominated as supervisors for public examinations.

“The Committee observed that even with the commendable efforts of the Council in the fight against examination malpractice, the menace is still on the increase.

“There was high rate of impersonation as a form of examination malpractice during the WASSCE examinations.
