A Hybrid Examination Approach

The inaugural CB-WASSCE adopted a hybrid methodology, integrating both multiple-choice and essay-type questions, to comprehensively evaluate candidates. This approach enabled real-time responses for multiple-choice questions via computers, while essay and practical test answers were submitted through traditional booklets. Conducted from January 31 to February 17, 2024, this pioneering examination initiative signifies a leap towards embracing technology-enhanced learning and assessment methods.
Participation and Performance Insights

The examination witnessed the participation of 8,139 candidates across 140 CBT centres nationwide, with a slight decrease in candidature compared to the previous year. Notably, the examination accommodated 21 candidates with special needs, including visually impaired, hearing-impaired, and albino candidates, ensuring inclusivity and fairness in the examination process.

A comprehensive analysis revealed that 42.07% of candidates achieved credits and above in a minimum of five subjects, with 30.95% securing credits in five subjects including English Language and Mathematics. This reflects a marginal increase in performance, underscoring the potential of CBE in enhancing examination outcomes.

Reduced Examination Malpractices

The transition to CBE has notably mitigated examination malpractices, with only 0.80% of candidates’ results withheld for related infractions, a significant decrease from the previous year. This positive trend highlights the effectiveness of CBE in upholding integrity and fairness within the examination process.
Result Accessibility and Digital Certificates

Candidates can readily access their results via www.waecdirect.org and obtain digital copies of their certificates through www.waec.org. Additionally, the WAEC Certificate Request Portal (e-Certman) offers an online service for printing hard copies of certificates, further enhancing convenience and accessibility for candidates.

Acknowledgements and Future Endeavours

WAEC extends its gratitude to various stakeholders, including government bodies, security agencies, educational institutions, and ad-hoc personnel, for their invaluable support in facilitating the successful conduct of the CB-WASSCE. This collaborative effort underscores the collective commitment to advancing educational standards and outcomes for candidates across West Africa.

As we reflect on the achievements of the CB-WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2024-First Series, it is evident that the adoption of computer-based examinations heralds a new era of efficiency, integrity, and inclusivity in academic assessment. The successful implementation of this initiative offers promising prospects for future examinations, aligning with global trends and the evolving needs of learners and educators alike.
