WAEC DENIES FAILING CANDIDATES, SAYS NO NAME CORRECTION
SCHOOL GIST NOW ON WAEC: The West African Examination Council, WAEC, has reacted to candidates’ request for amendment of date of birth saying that such is not allowed after results have been released.
”Please note that WAEC would not entertain any request for amendment of date of birth after Results had been released”, it noted.
Meanwhile, the council has explained that it is not in charge of marking results after examinations.
WAEC said this while dismissing insinuations that it deliberately failed candidates so they can reapply to enable the council make more money.
Head of National Office, WAEC Nigeria, Olu Adenipekun, said, “It is a wrong assumption that the council deliberately fail candidates”.
“We don’t fail candidates. The scores they obtain reflect their performance. It is what the candidates score that we grade.
HOW TO CHECK WAEC RESULT WITHOUT SCRATCH CARD
“We don’t prepare candidates for examination; it is the responsibility of schools.
“Our examinations and grading of results are of international standards.
“Let me tell you that examiners and markers are not WAEC staff.
“The bulk of them are from the school system. The marking exercise goes through a tight process.
“We don’t predetermine students’ scores. We grade them according to what they have written and in line with the international marking scheme.”
