According to a spokeswoman for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), her outfit does not set two or more versions of questions for a particular subject as speculated by many candidates in the country.
It is over the past decade believed that the Examinations Council sets multiple set of questions for a particular subject and that it’s able to replace any set of question that leaks before the conduct of a subject paper.
But, the Head of Public Relations of WAEC, Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe speaking in an interview monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said that is not the case on the side of the Council citing that such an exercise is a huge task.
Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe noted the number of candidates in the country that partake in any of the national examinations each year will not be possible for WAEC to print a different set of questions for each subject.
“That perception that WAEC sets multiple exam questions for a particular subject is never true. This year we have about 530,000 candidates so how can we print 530,000 questions times two or three. It is not possible, there’s never any version of a particular subject exam question”, she stated.
The WAEC official furthered that “ It is only one version if it leaks nothing can be done about it. We can’t have our officials on the field with two or three sets of questions so that when something happens we’ll say, hey, change and give the candidates the other set. It is just not possible.”
