We Are Not In Charge of Marking Candidates Scripts – WAEC
Adenipekun said it is a wrong assumption that the council deliberately fail candidates.
The head of the national office of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Olu Adenipekun, has disclosed that the council is not in charge of marking results after examinations.
Adenipekun said it is a wrong assumption that the council deliberately fail candidates .
”We don’t fail candidates. The scores they obtain reflect their performance. It is what the candidates score that we grade.
”We don’t prepare candidates for examination; it is the responsibility of schools.
”WAEC only assesses them based on prescribed textbooks which they are expected to be taught in schools,” he said
The council boss also said WAEC examinations and grading of results are of international standards.
”Let me tell you that examiners and markers are not WAEC staff.
”The bulk of them are from the school system. The marking exercise goes through a tight process.
”We don’t predetermine students’ scores. We grade them according to what they have written and in line with the international marking scheme,” he added.
