Angel Carbonu stands to be the recent President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT). He has stated that colleges may evaluate entrance exams before admitting students. The President passed this comment following recent leaks of exam questions from the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
Exam misconduct, he claims, is becoming more complex and systemized.
He explained that when exam leaks worsen, the legitimacy and sanctity of certificates will be called into question.
Angel Carbonu, speaking on Citi Eyewitness News, said, “[These leaks] call into doubt the authenticity and purity of certifications… When the universities in Ghana start to doubt the validity and purity of our exam, I don’t think it’ll be long before the various university councils make a decision requiring students to take an entrance exam before being admitted.”
He went on to say that the examination council appears to be struggling to deal with the problem.
“How is it that WAEC has been deemed incapable of finding a solution to this problem? Perhaps WAEC systems are so ineffective that they are unable to recognize and remedy problems, despite the fact that advanced technology exists outside of WAEC,” he noted.
Ghanaians and other stakeholders are concerned about the continuous leaks of examination questions.
Five papers were leaked this year. As a result, two examination papers had to be canceled and rescheduled.
