The West African Examination Council (WAEC) is set to commence marking of its theoretical examination questions electronically in line with global best practices.

The Head of Nigeria National Office of WAEC, Mr. Olutise Adenipekun. who made the disclosure during an interaction with the education writers, said that the project is scheduled to begin with the ongoing November /December West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

He said as a result of the development, candidates can no longer take their theory questions home after their examinations, as answer booklets are now combined with the question papers.

According to Adenipekun, the adoption of the Information Communication Technology (ICT) in the conduct of the examination is aimed not only at ensuring near perfection but to also lead globally in the area of examination integrity.

He, however, added that the development does not mean that teachers who the body usually engage in the traditional marking method will be dropped, but that they will still be engaged to handle the electronic-marking project.
