WAEC plans to stop registering external candidates


The West African Examination Council (WAEC) yesterday said it would soon stop the registration of external students by schools.
The coordinator of WAEC in Plateau, Mr Basil Inyang, made the announcement at a stakeholder’s forum on “Eradication of Examination Malpractice’’, organised  by the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Jos.
The coordinator also said that once a student failed the examination, the said student would not be availed the opportunity to register in the succeeding year.
“We shall soon cancel the registration of external candidates by secondary schools.
“This is because most students look for 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 sit for the second time, the students must go back to  their  former school and register again,’’ he said.
Inyang said said that there were a lot of reforms that WAEC was undertaking at the moment in its quest to curb examination malpractices.
He challenged teachers to impact on students, the virtue of effective knowledge, as most of them looked up to their teachers as role models.
He also called on parents to instil in their children good moral standards, advising parents to desist from supporting their children partaking in examination fraud.
