The registrar of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Dr Iyi Uwadiae has revealed that the examination body is perfecting plans to adopt the CBT mode in its examinations.

He however stated that the council is not in a hurry as it is considering all variables as not to mess the whole idea up.

“We have looked at the issue of CBT and found that this is not a selection test, where one can deal with paper and pencil.

“With that, you can easily migrate to CBT, but for an achievement test where you train people to become engineers, medical doctors and others, there will be need for practical experience.

“So, they do not just train them practically in the class, they equally need to be tested on theory.

“Against this background, therefore, we are collaborating with other examination bodies and experts outside Nigeria to ensure that when we start, we will not mess up the entire process.

“And what is expected of the candidates can still be achieved”, he stressed.
