The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has revealed the fact that blind candidates also cheat during examinations, hence their less than stellar performance, when results come out.
The Head of Test Administration of WAEC in Nigeria, Mrs Frances Iweha-Onukwu, made the revelation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos recently, saying the blind candidates cheat by colluding.
According to Iweha-Onukwu said the reason could be that the candidates were usually not well equipped individually for the examinations. “We have discovered that there is usually high incidence of collusion among blind candidates during examinations. That is why their performance has not really been anything wonderful. Our society is such that there have not been adequate and conscious efforts to take care of the challenged. There have not been enough trained personnel to guide blind candidates before being exposed to major external examination’’, she said.
