The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has stated that the adoption and full implementation of the Computer Based Test (CBT) mode will not be feasible for now, due to the nature of its examinations.

This was made known by the WAEC’s Head of National Office (HNO), Dr Charles Eguridu, in Lagos. According to Eguridu, those making the call are ignorant of the socioeconomic variables that are necessary for the adoption of the CBT for WAEC examinations.

He pointed at the issue of internet connectivity especially in rural communities, electricity as well as the cost of providing computer systems for all candidates nationwide as huge hindrances to the venture.

“WAEC examinations involve the use of multiple choice questions, essay and practical, in which case we test various domains of learning. “And with this, it is not going to be valid to test certain domains of learning with CBT. “Or can you use CBT in measuring proficiency in certain trade subjects such as carpentry and others? ’’ He stressed.

“All what I am trying to explain here is that it will not be possible for us to adopt the CBT mode for our examinations at least for now. “Probably what we will do as an organisation is to adopt the CBT for certain aspects of our examination and not all the areas.
” He stressed.
