WAEC TO STOP SCHOOLS FROM REGISTERING EXTERNAL STUDENTS




The West African
Examination Council
(WAEC) on Tuesday 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 forum on
Eradication of
Examination Malpractice,
organised by the National
Orientation Agency (NOA)
in Jos on Tuesday.

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.

As 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,and
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.
