The West African Examination Council (WAEC) will be introducing QR codes in each of the question papers of candidate to curb examination malpractice. The move will help to check and possibly do away with the duplication of examination questions and to practically deal with impersonation. Examinations organised by WAEC in recent years have been flawed with several instances of malpractice and the 2020 WASSCE was arguably the worst.
Many have suggested that the WAEC is not competent enough to conduct credible examination thus a new body needs to be introduced. It was widespread news that candidates were supplied with questions and answers long before the commencement of the papers.
