The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on Saturday identified Examination Malpractice as a major challenge militating against its operations in its 64 years of existence. The Council’s Head of Test Administration, Mrs Frances Iweha-Onukwu, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
According to her, the scourge is a canker worm that has eaten deep in the fabric among candidates, not only in Nigeria, but also in member countries. She, however, noted that the council was gradually winning the war as it kept introducing new cutting-edge technology to stop the ugly trend.
“One major challenge we are battling against, since inception, has been that of Examination Malpractice, but we are happy that we are winning the war.
