West African Examinations Council Meeting

The 68th Meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), was held from Tuesday, 5th to Thursday, 7th November, 2019 at Excellence Hotel & Conference Centre, Ogba – Lagos.

The Committee, which is the highest decision-making organ of WAEC on examination-related matters in Nigeria, meets twice a year, to consider matters relating to the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates and Private Candidates. Its statutory Chairman is the Chief Federal Government Nominee on Council. Membership of the Committee comprises four representatives each, of the State Ministries of Education and the Department of Education of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, ANCOPSS and the Universities. It also includes the Registrar to Council, the Head of the Nigeria National Office, the Head of the Test Development Division (TDD) and the Head of the Test Administration Division (TAD) of the Council.

During the 68th Meeting, the Committee received reports on Irregularity, Special and Clemency Cases arising from the conduct of the WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2018-Second Series and the WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2019-First Series, earlier considered at the 67th Meeting of the Committee. The Committee also considered a report on the conduct of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2019, as well as Irregularity Cases arising from the conduct of the examination.

In the course of considering the various reported cases of malpractice, the Committee, after diligent deliberations, approved appropriate sanctions in all established cases of malpractice, as prescribed by the Rules and Regulations governing the conduct of the Council’s examinations. It approved that the entire results of candidates involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Entire Results (CER), be cancelled, while subject results of those involved in proven cases, which attract Cancellation of Subject Results (CSR), be similarly cancelled. In addition, some candidates will also suffer other sanctions such as barring them from sitting for the Council’s examinations for a certain number of years, some schools will be derecognised for a specified number of years, some supervisors that were found wanting in the discharge of their examination duties will be formally reported to their employers and blacklisted while some

invigilators will also be reported to the appropriate authorities for disciplinary action. The decisions of the Committee will be implemented without delay and the affected candidates and schools duly informed by the Council. However, the results of candidates who were exonerated by the Committee will be released.

Furthermore, the Committee considered Special Cases, Clemency Appeals from the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2019 and Restitution Cases as well as Impounded Certificates for various years. The Committee also received a report on the Statistics of Entries and Results for the WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2018-Second Series and WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2019-First Series. In addition, it received and considered the General Resume of the Chief Examiners’ Reports on the WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2019-First Series and the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2019. It also received and considered reports on the Activities of the Aptitude Tests Department (ATD), for the period March to September, 2019 and on the Activities of the Research Department of the Council for the period April to September, 2019.

With regard to the General Resume of the Chief Examiners’ Reports on the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2019, the Committee noted the observation by the Chief Examiners that the standard of the papers compared favourably with those of previous years and that the questions were within the scope of the syllabuses as well as the ability of the candidates. They also reported that the rubrics were clearly stated and the marking schemes were comprehensive.

The Committee noted the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates as reported by the Chief Examiners and the suggested remedies for the weaknesses.

It frowned at the high rate of incidence of candidates bringing mobile phones into the examination halls and called on schools, invigilators and supervisors to enforce the rule barring mobile phones and ensure proper supervision during the conduct of WASSCE.

The Committee decried the penchant of Ministry of Education officials in some States to hijack the process of appointment of supervisors and urged WAEC to liaise with principals of schools and ministry of education officials in those States to ensure that only credible teachers are appointed to supervise the WASSCE.

It, however, observed that some subjects were going extinct because of the dearth of teachers in those subjects leading to poor performance of candidates and called on governments at various levels to stem the tide.

The Committee noted with admiration the fact that WAEC made arrangements for students with special needs and the improvement in the performance of female candidates during the conduct of the examination and commended the Federal, State and Local Governments for encouraging girl-child education without neglecting the male child.

Finally, the Committee commended the Council for deploying the Variable Data Printing technology; the scanning and electronic marking of some subjects for the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2019 noting, that those actions have helped to check examination malpractice.
