The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is a type of standardized test written by final year students in West Africa. Students who pass the exam receive a certificate confirming their graduation from junior high and secondary education. It is only offered to candidates residing in Anglophone West African countries. The WASSCE tests four core subjects—English, mathematics, integrated science, social studies, and four elective subjects.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) made a warning earlier that any candidate caught in the act of cheating will be sanctioned by the examinations council. They warned students that if they are caught engaging in any form of malpractice, they will be bitterly penalised. Following the cancellation of two papers which were Elective Mathematics and English language, WAEC has released an official statement.
In a video that went viral this week, a student was captured memorising the "Objectives" of a paper he had. From the video, it could be drawn that he had difficulty even chewing only the "A, B, C, D". Objectives normally has either 40 or more questions to be answered. This could, however, be difficult for him to memorise everything.
Due to the difficulty he had in doing so, he decided to take the paper on which the answers to the objectives were written on, into the exams hall. This may be because of the tension he had. He said "mede b3 wuram", which literally means in English that, "I'll take it inside".
See the reaction from his friends in the video below:
