The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says it will start Computer Based Examination (CBE) with private candidates writing the 2024 WASSCE.
In a statement, WAEC’s acting Head of Public Affairs, Moyosola Adesina, said the examination body is migrating its WASSCE for Private Candidates Examination Diets from Paper and Pencil Test to Computer Based Examination (CBE) with the exam scheduled for February.
The statement said while the Objective Tests will be fully Computer Based, the Essay and Test of Practical papers will be hybrid, in which the examination questions will be delivered on screen and candidates required to write answers on the answer booklets given to them.
It further said the examination will be conducted in urban centres/cities and candidates with special needs have been factored into the plan.
Meanwhile, registration for the examination will commence on Monday, December 18, 2023.
