The West African Examinations Council (WAEC)
has identified the use of text message symbols
as part of the “general weaknesses of
candidates in the various subjects” of the
Council’s examinations.
This was contained in a communiqué issued at
the weekend by the Public Affairs Officer of the
Council, Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, after the 60th
Meeting of the Nigeria Examinations Committee,
the Council’s highest decision-making organ in
Nigeria.
It said: “General weaknesses of candidates in
the various subjects as outlined in the Reports
include poor command of language,
indiscriminate lifting of portions of set passages
as answers and use of text message abbreviation
“u” for “you” in English Language.”
According to the statement, “appropriate
sanctions” were also recommended for
candidates, schools and supervisors who were
indicted in the various reports submitted to the
Committee for consideration, in a bid to reduce
the rate of examination malpractice:
“The Committee endorsed appropriate sanctions
in all established cases of malpractice as
prescribed by the Rules and Regulations
governing the conduct of the Council’s
examinations after diligent deliberations. It
approved that the entire results of candidates
involved in proven cases, which attract
cancellation of entire results (CER) be cancelled,
while subject results of those involved in cases
which attract cancellation of subject results
(CSR) be similarly cancelled.”
Subjects in which the performance of candidates
was said to be good included: Shorthand,
Financial Accounting, Commerce, Typewriting,
Storekeeping, Bookkeeping, Office Practice, Store
Management and Physics 2.
The Committee’s 60th Meeting considered
reports emanating from the conduct of
November/December 2014 and May/June 2015
examinations.
