The greatest challenge the government are facing concerning the resumption of schools is covid-19. However, with the knowledge of technology, covid-19 won’t be able to hinder the commencement of the exam, the government can introduce an online exam for all graduating students.
The government doesn’t want to expose them to covid-19, as it’s known, covid-19 spreads from person to person.
Some weeks ago, president Buhari, who is the president of Nigeria approved the resumption of schools for all graduating Student, so they could take their exams, which makes most student happy, as they will get to pen all what they have read down.
However, after examining the situation, the ministry of education made it known that out there is not yet safe for student, and students shouldn’t resume yet.
However, in order not to hinder the progress of students and not to as well, expose them to covid-19, WAEC should conduct an online exam for all graduating student.
WAEC Computer Based Test
If online exam will be accepted by WAEC and the federal government, the following things should be taken note of.
1) The exam should be similar to jamb exam, in which time frame will be given, and student will have to do the exam at home, either via their PC or a computer centre nearest to them.
2) The issue of exam malpractice should be less consider, we should be most consider about the progress of student, however to reduce high rate of exam malpractice, the front camera of a computer the student is using for the exam will be used as security, and once a student starts an exam, he/she must not look side ways, focus on the computer till the end of the exam.
3) In case of students who aren’t privileged to have a personal computer at home, and will have to the computer centre nearest to them, the maximum number of candidate should not be more than 20
