WAEC Devised New Mechanism to Detect Malpractice in Objective Test (Questions) - Official Release

November 30, 2018

THE WEST AFRICAN EXAMINATIONS COUNCIL PMB 1022, YABA, LAGOS-NIGERIA 

THE WEST AFRICAN EXAMINATIONS COUNCIL DEPLOYS A NEW ELECTRONIC MEANS OF DETECTING EXAMINATION MALPRACTICE (COLLUSION CASES) IN OBJECTIVE TESTS

INTRODUCTION
  1. Since it is not possible for WAEC inspectors to visit all schools/centres to inspect the conduct of all examination papers, due to the geographical spread of examination centres across the country, many malpractice cases such as collusion are perpetrated during examinations.
  2. A high number of collusion cases are usually detected by examiners during the marking of Essay Scripts.
  3. There are schools/centres where almost all the candidates score very high marks in objective tests, but very low marks in the theory papers, and this has been of great concern to the Council.
  4. Collusion cases in Objective Papers previously went undetected because of lack of known technologies to detect malpractice in objective tests.
  5. A new software tool, Item Differential Profile, is now available to detect collusion cases in objective tests.


DEPLOYMENT OF NEW TECHNOLOGICAL INSTRUMENT (IEM DIFFERENTIA PROFILE) FOR THE DETECTION OF COLLUSION CASES IN OBJECTIVE TEST

  1. WAEC through its commitment to combatting examination malpractice, consistent innovation, deployment of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in its operations, has deployed a software application for detecting cases of collusion (malpractice) among candidates during the conduct of Objective tests.
  2. The new technological solution is capable of detecting most of the collusion cases that take place during the conduct of objective tests in WASSC examinations, and to report on the candidates who were implicated, using the charge sheets, that are electronically generated by the computer.
  3. Candidates and other stakeholders are hereby informed about this new development, so that they would be advised to desist from examination malpractice forthwith because ignorance will not be accepted as an excuse for any reported breach. Please be guided accordingly.

Several students had worked so hard for the best grades but to their surprise, the very lazy asses made better grades.

This is a dilemma being caused by malpractice and cheating of all kinds.

More disappointingly, schools who are supposed to check anomalies of this nature have been found to be the master minders behind the scene.

This is why some people have to find recourses on how to report a school taking credit for great results even with malpractice.

WAEC is one of such well-known SSCE exams that has rest of malpractice. The body in charge had given whistleblowers the authority and guide to reporting schools to them.

What is malpractice according to WAEC?

School of Nursing VS Bsc Nursing: Which one is the best for you?

November 29, 2018

Differences Between RN, RM and Bsc Nursing (BSN)

I don’t just pick up a pen to write, I write about what people are searching for. I write to answer questions.

A student came into my office just recently to ask which one he should go for between Bsc Nursing through a university degree and registered nurse – through school or college of nursing (SON).

If you’re in the same dilemma, I suggest you read this post to the very end. I had briefly answer this in my post, "School of Nursing, Health Tech and Hygiene: Answers to Students’ Questions on Admissions"

School or College of Nursing and Midwifery

In Nigeria, if you give in to the school of nursing and midwifery, below is the picture of your life.

You Obtain Admission form

  1. SON is run by a university teaching of a hospital (TH) except private. Such TH will sell admission form usually every year to admit a new set of students.
  2. After obtaining the form, you’re admitted through entrance exams, physical interview and medical test.
  3. Now you’re to remain a nursing student for the next three academic years which are majorly practicals centered.
  4. After the completion of your nursing course and passing external exams called Hospital Final, you’re awarded registered nurse (RN) title.

List of Schools and Colleges of Nursing in Nigeria

  1. University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital School of Nursing
  2. Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja School of Nursing
  3. Kaduna State College of Nursing 
  4. Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital School of Nursing 
  5. Oyo State College of Nursing, Eleyele Ibadan
  6. Ogun State School of Nursing and Midwifery
  7. University of Benin Teaching Hospital School of Nursing
  8. Benue State School of Nursing
  9. University of Ibadan Teaching Hospital School of Nursing
  10. Ahmadu Bello University teaching Hospital School of Nursing
  11. Kastina State School of Nursing and Midwifery
  12. Adamawa State College of Nursing and Midwifery 
  13. University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital
Please check back for updates of this list or subscribe to my blog for such updates to be sent straight to your email.

Continue to University or School of Midwifery

Unfortunately, RN is not equivalent to Bsc or Degree Nursing. This is why you may still want to continue to a university. And if you’re contented with RN, you can use this to work as a staff nurse in any hospital and health centre.
  1. If you choose to proceed to university, you will have to obtain JAMB Direct Entry form and choose a university of your interest.
  2. If offered admission, eventually, you will be admitted to 200 or 300 level Degree Nursing; depending, in school policies.
  3. Then you spend another 4 or 3 years to complete Bsc. or Degree Nursing; after which you’ll be awarded Registered Midwifery and Bsc Nursing or BSN.

From RN to Midwifery

  1. Another stage after RN at a school of nursing is called a school of Midwifery. This is administered usually by the same teaching hospital.
  2. If you prefer this instead of obtaining JAMB DE form, you may need to spend another 1 or 2 years after RN for your midwifery course. Then you have two certificates altogether – RN and (Registered Midwifery) RM.

Study Nursing at University Instead

If you choose university Nursing instead of the school of Nursing/ midwifery, Below is the picture of your journey.

You Obtain JAMB Form

  1. You’ll have to register UTME for the admission year, like any other candidates seeking admission into other courses.
  2. If you score the required mark of your proposed school - usually 200 and above, you then obtain post UTME form and take their post UTME test where required. Schools such as OAU, UI, UNILAG, ABU, UNIBEN etc conduct post UTME test while schools like UNIOSUN, KWASU etc do not.
  3. If you’re eventually admitted, you’ll be running the course for 5 years after which you will be awarded three certificates - RN, RM and (Bachelor of Nursing) BSN.

Career/Jobs: What is your fate with Bsc Nursing and School of Nursing/Midwifery?

Your academic journey has finally come to an end. You’re done with your nursing degree or midwifery. Here is the picture of what is to come. What is next in the labour market or at work?

Experience has shown that graduates of universities are senior officers above those who completed RN only - or plus RM.

This means, if we have a staff with RN and RM who had been working for ten years or more, she will eventually be subordinate or junior colleague to a new staff with Bsc Nursing.

Conclusion

I had intentionally made this piece short so you can quickly grab my points without letting important values out.

Most students, for the first time, are hearing this truth. That's why you have to help me share this eye-opening write-up.

Kindly share with your contacts on Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter. I had left the links below to help you share it conveniently.

Want to Recall/Remark WAEC Scripts? Here is What You Must Know?

November 28, 2018
Official WAEC logo
A student, you may be tempted to ask for papers remark if your grades in such papers are somewhat disappointing. This is not far from common. It’s possibly happened to all of us at one point or the other.

You’re sure you wrote well for some papers in your WAEC or GCE. But when the result was out, you’re disappointed to see that you failed those papers or you had grades below your expectation.

If you’re on this page for NECO remark of scripts, kindly subscribe to this blog for future updates about that. No known official release yet.

And with most schools offering admissions based on the performance (A1, B2, B3 etc) in SSCE (especially when such schools don’t write post UTME but instead, admission screening), a student may be forced to ask for remarking of his papers.


Is Script Remarking Possible or Allowed for WAEC?
Yes, it’s legally and officially allowed.

But this is only limited to the internal students (i.e May/June SSCE WAEC). Candidates with such issues in WAEC Jan/Feb (GCE Series) or Aug/Sept (GCE Series) are not allowed to recall paper for remarking.

What is the Procedure to Recall papers?
  1. First, candidate through the school principal or exams officer should apply for this within the 60 days of releasing the result. The body will decline any application after such date.
  2. First, contact your school principal or exams officer for your intention
  3. The school will prepare a letter to remark your scripts. This letter will be sent to WAEC for consideration.
  4. WAEC will get back to the school for the fee application (usually #10,000) as this will require you to pay for each of the paper to be recalled) and the modality it will follow to remark your scripts.
  5. This price is not fixed though, yet it will be nothing to break the bank for.
  6. The papers will be given to another marker under a strict monitoring
  7. If you’ve done well really, a new set of grades will be awarded.

This was WAEC answer to a cnadiate who wanted the remark of WAEC GCE script

Will It Favour Me If I Recall Papers for Remarking?
Yes, it can.

In most cases, it does favour.

If you’re very certain of your ability and what you put down for the examiner, you’ve nothing to fear to remark your scripts.

If after remarking, no difference, you will have to retain the grade earlier given.

Don’t forget, remarking of scripts is only limited to SSCE WAEC school candidates, not private candidates (in WAEC GCE).

NECO Exams and Results: Answers to Your Questions Before You Obtain the Form

November 27, 2018
NECO Logo

Answers to questions on NECO registration, exams, results, admission etc.

The third most popular exams in Nigeria is NECO, apart from JAMB and WAEC which take first and second position respectively.

You have some questions about NECO. You want to know if it’s the right exams for you to seek admission to both local and foreign schools.

The post below gives answers to a series of questions students, like you, have asked about NECO.

Enjoy!

1. What is NECO?
The full meaning of NECO is National Examination Council. This is the exams body saddled with the responsibility of conducting Nigerian based Ordinary level examinations.

NECO is to take exclusive charge of the conduct of the SSCE for school-based candidates as Nigeria is concerned just as WAEC is to conduct SSCE exams for West Africa countries.

The first NECO exam was in 2000.

2. What are the exams conducted by NECO?
  1. NECO June/July for internal or school candidates.
  2. NECO Nov/Dec for private candidates. 
  3.  Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for third-year students of the Junior Secondary School.National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE) for pupils in their 6th year of basic education. 

3. How can I register for NECO?
To register for NECO June/July (Internal), visit your school of interest (around you) and ask for their procedures. Procedures can be different from one school to the other.

To register for NECO Nov/Dec (External), visit the nearest internet café. Cafés can register it for you. They can give you details and modalities to register.

To register for NECO BECE, visit your school of interest and ask for their procedures. Procedures can be different from one school to the other.

To register NECO Common Entrance (NCEE), visit your school of interest and ask for their procedures. Procedures can be different from one school to the other.


4. How can I check my NECO results?
See the step by step guide in the post, "How to Check NECO Results on http://www.mynecoexams.com/results/" Or follow the instructions at NECO result checking page. or

Here are the result checking pages for BECE and NCEE respectively.

5. How much is NECO June/July or Nov/Dec registration?
There’s no uniform price for NECO June/July among schools.

Some schools add much and some add less with the based price as charged by the exams body.

Consider visiting several schools to compare their charges.

In the case of NECO External (Nov/Dec), you can see the official price on the NECO website. Be prepared to pay for a café service charge in addition to the form price.

6. How can I apply for correction of names in NECO?
If there are spelling mistakes during your NECO registration, kindly write NECO branch office of the state of exams through the school principal (in the case of internal students – NECO June/July)

If you’re a private candidate (NECO GCE – Nov/Dec), write and take a letter to the state NECO branch personally with accompanying court affidavit.

7. What is the Closing Date for NECO registration?
First, note that even though NECO can announce a specific closing date, schools don’t wait until this date before they end acceptance of applications from candidates.

Hence, contact your interested school to know their own closing dates.

In the case of external NECO (Nov/Dec), closing date on their website should be taken seriously. If you miss it, you can still go for walk-in candidates registration.

8. How can I get NECO timetable?
The timetable for the internal NECO should be requested from the school exams officer.

Applicants for NECO Nov/Dec should have their timetable accompanied with their exams photocard. This should be given to you by the café you register at.

You can also check NECO external page for current year timetable update.

9. Can I combine two NECO results for admission?
Yes.

You can combine two different NECO results for admission. You can as well combine NECO June/July with NECO Nov/Dec.

Note that all schools accept this combination and for any course whatsoever.

Meanwhile, some courses like Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy etc require only one sitting. In that case, you can't combine results. Check the post, "School of Nursing, Health Tech and Hygiene: Answers to Students’ Questions on Admissions" for further details on this.

10. Can I combine NECO result with WAEC results?
Yes.

All schools are accepting this combination.

However, some courses may not even allow two sittings e.g Nursing, Medicine, Pharmacy.

In such cases, you can’t combine results.

11. Can I use NECO awaiting results for admission?
Yes.

NECO awaiting results can be used for admission provided that such result will be released before your proposed school starts admission processes for the admission year.

More on using awaiting results were discussed in the post, "AWAITING RESULTS: Answers to Students' Questions on Admission".

12. Can I use NECO results for foreign admission?
Yes.

Most foreign schools are now accepting NECO results for admissions.

All you have to do is to contact the school to know if they accept it for their admissions.

13. How can I check my NECO result without a scratch card or checker?
No.

As at now, you can’t check your NECO result for FREE.

Every candidate must buy a checking card (usually called checker) to check on NECO result checking website.

14. Where can I buy NECO scratch card and how much?
You can buy a checker at the nearest NECO office at #300.

You can also visit any available internet café around to buy the card but at a higher price probably.

15. How many times can I use NECO checker for a result?
Five (5) times.

You are allowed to check a single result with the same card on 5 different occasions.

Hence, it’s not possible to use one card for two results.

NECO Walk-in Candidates Registration: How to, Modalities, Price and More

November 27, 2018
Let’s talk NECO exams registration and its walk-in candidate's registration for their GCE or November/December exams.

National Examination council conduct two SSCE exams yearly. First, NECO June/July usually called NECO Internal. This is the school candidates exams. Second, the NECO (GCE) Nov/Dec usually called the NECO external. This is the private candidate's exams.

Read more about NECO and her exams in my post, “NECO Exams and Results: Answers to Your Questions on National Examination Council (NECO)

NECO Add Walk-in Registration Opportunity
The Walk-in registration is an opportunity for all interested applicants who missed the deadline (closing date) for the application.

However, this is, as at the time of this writing, only opened to the NECO external. In other words, the school candidates exam has not allowed late registration in such manner.

How Does Walk-in Application work?
  1. Candidates who wish to register and sit for 2018 NOV/DEC SSCE after the closing date must adhere to the following guidelines:
  2. Candidates must complete their registration within twenty-four (24) hours to the scheduled time of the paper(s) that they intend to sit for. The Walk-in-Candidate’s fee for the examination is twenty thousand naira only (N20,000.00) per candidate
  3. Candidates are to pay the registration fee to NECO TSA and present evidence of payment at the NECO State Office.
  4. Candidates are to collect activated registration scratch cards from NECO State Office.
  5. Biometrics enrollment is mandatory for this examination.
  6. Candidates are to report to the examination centre on the date and time of the scheduled

Important Notice
  1. This means a candidate can at any time (while the exam is already on and some papers already done) still register for the exams and partake in the rest of the papers. Such candidates will only be allowed to write any next papers but not the ones already done.
  2. NECO GCE is right for you if you have one or two deficiencies in your NECO June/July results. You can take this exam to make up for such.
  3. You can check if the registration is still opened to walk-in candidates when papers are still ongoing. As soon as the final paper is done, no such chance opened again.
