Diary of a Teacher (DoT) with Titilope Ogundele

INCREDIBLE!!! See What Parents Now Do For Their Wards Before And During WAEC

The senior secondary school certificate examination organised by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) is gradually winding to a close but my interaction with some people has raised some concerns in my heart.

Matthew is one of the candidates writing 2022 WASSCE. We got talking some days ago; so I asked him about his exams and he responded that it was going on smoothly.

In the course of the chit chat, I said to him, ‘I hope you are not cheating’. I did not stop at that, I asked him if the teachers weren’t giving them expo; I wanted to know if they weren’t telling them answers in the exam hall.

He had a shocker for me, the teachers were ‘helping’ them in the exam hall. That isn’t the real gist, the real gist is that the school made the students pay for the ‘help’. To cap it all, the payment was compulsory.

I was dazed! Students were compelled to pay for examination malpractice! We are definitely in a big mess. How do we explain this?

Parents pay exorbitant fees as tuition to have their pupils taught in the class. And you still make them pay for malpractice? What an irony?

But come, let’s reason together. How did we get into this mess? How do we get out of it? These are questions bothering my heart right now.

What's your reaction?
