The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the leading examining body in Africa, has announced a major update that’s set to revolutionize how exams are conducted.
Starting from February 2024, WAEC will introduce computer-based testing (CBT) for private candidates. That means, if you’re planning to sit for the WASSCE as a private candidate, you’ll be part of this innovative experience.
Why the Change?
It’s all about staying in step with global best practices. WAEC is committed to providing an examination process that’s not only up-to-date but also efficient and reliable. By moving to CBT, they’re ensuring that you get the best examination experience possible.
What’s New in the Testing Format?
The CBT approach will be implemented for the objective tests, while the essay and practical papers will remain a blend of digital and traditional methods. This hybrid model ensures that, even as you enjoy the benefits of technology, you won’t miss out on the aspects of testing that work best on paper.
- Registration Kick-off: Mark your calendars for Monday, December 18, 2023. That’s when registration for the exam begins.
- Mock Exams: Before the main event, there will be mock exams in February 2024 to help you get comfortable with the new system.
Get ready to be part of this exciting journey with WAEC. Good luck, and stay ahead of the curve!
