WAEC to serialise some subjects in 2023 WASSCE

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced that it will implement a serialisation system for certain selected questions in the upcoming 2023 West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). The purpose of this measure, as stated by the council, is to combat exam malpractices effectively.

Under this serialisation process, all candidates in the same examination hall will receive the same questions, but the questions will be numbered differently. This approach ensures that the integrity of the chosen subjects is safeguarded, as they are considered less prone to compromise.

John Kapi, the Head of Public Affairs at the Council, made this announcement during a media briefing.

“Serialisation is not anything that is landing from space. Besides nothing has changed about the structure of the questions. It is just that we have serialised some of them. It is our trade secret, and we want to maintain that. We are not unduly punishing anybody, it is the same question just that there is some serialisation. There are some of these papers that are high stake and so for those high stake papers we would want to serialise them.”

“Secondly it is a very expensive venture to get into, it is time-consuming and all of that. And so we concentrate more on the high stake papers and then there are a few of them that we consider as low risk, and so we don’t serialise those ones,” he said.

A total of 447,204 candidates drawn from 975 schools are expected to sit for this year’s WASSCE.
