WAEC to Introduce CBT for WASSCE



The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is set to introduce a Computer Based Test (CBT) mode

for its senior school certificate examination (WASSCE).

The Head of National Office (HNO), Mr Patrick Areghan,

made the announcement on Saturday, September 23.

He said that introducing CBT had been part of his vision for the council for some time now.

Areghan said that WAEC had already started planning for CBT and was making good progress.

Nevertheless, he acknowledged that there were some challenges that needed to be addressed

before CBT could be implemented for all WASSCE subjects.

One of the biggest challenges is that not all schools have the necessary computer facilities

Also, some subjects, such as practicals and essays, are more difficult to administer using CBT.

Despite the challenges, Areghan is confident that WAEC will be able to introduce CBT for WASSCE in the near future.

He said that the council is considering a phased approach,

starting with objective questions and then gradually expanding to other types of questions.

Here are some of the potential benefits of introducing CBT for WASSCE:

Reduced cheating and malpractice

Faster and more efficient marking and results processing

More accurate and reliable results

Improved environmental friendliness

However, it is important to note that there are also some potential challenges,

such as the need to ensure that all students have access to computers and the internet.

Additionally, CBT can be a more stressful experience for some students than traditional paper-and-pencil exams.

Overall, the introduction of CBT for WASSCE is a positive development

that could lead to a number of benefits.

However, it is important to carefully consider the challenges involved and to ensure that all students are prepared for the change.

Corpers Made to Carry Mattresses as Punishment for Skipping Morning Parade



A recent video circulating online shows soldiers in Nigeria forcing National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members

to march with mattresses on their heads as punishment for missing morning parade.

The incident highlights ongoing concerns about the methods employed

in military training and the potential for abuse of power.

The video depicts soldiers instructing several NYSC members to carry their mattresses on their heads and

march around their colleagues as punishment for failing to attend the mandatory morning parade.

This incident raises questions about the effectiveness and

ethics of such public, humiliating punishments.

While discipline is essential within any military structure,

employing public humiliation as a disciplinary tool has the potential to inflict significant harm.

Such practices can lead to feelings of shame, embarrassment, and even resentment,

ultimately hindering the learning process and creating a negative environment for the individuals involved.

Building a culture of discipline within the NYSC program can be achieved through

alternative methods that focus on education, positive reinforcement, and constructive criticism.

These methods should prioritize clear communication

of expectations, encouraging positive behavior,

and implementing fair and progressive disciplinary actions

that focus on personal growth and accountability.

Effective military training should not only cultivate physical and

mental strength but also uphold ethical conduct and respect for human dignity.

This includes treating all individuals with respect and

employing methods that prioritize personal and professional integrity.


Ekiti camp this morning , they were sleeping in the hostel why others are in the parade ground, see what happen too them later🥵🥵
