Examination malpractice has characterized the conduct of the WAEC exams for students across the various regions of Ghana. This has led to the cancellation of exam results of students from various schools.
This situation is coming to an end as WAEC through its chairman has indicated, they will embed QR codes in exam question papers to curb the malpractice.
A publication by citinewsroom quoted Professor Ato Essuman to have said; “We have a new innovation now, that will track the question papers through the QR code. Whenever anyone tries running copies of a question paper, we will be alerted through our server,”
He added, “Each question paper will have a unique code, linked to a candidate’s index number and identification number. We can thus trace the perpetrators.”
Therefore, WAEC exam malpractice will come to an end if this decision is implemented.
