Even Blind Students Cheat During Examination- WACE

Mrs Frances Iweha-Onukwu

Still battling with examination malpractice, the WACE officals has made a sad revelation, saying that blind students also cheat during exams, they cheat by colluding during examinations.

Mrs Frances Iweha-Onukwu who is the head of Test Administration of WACE in Nigeria, disclosed this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Wednesday (today).

Mrs Frances said;

“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 added that maybe the reason for the poor performances during exam is becaue the  candidates are not well equipped individually for the examinations.

She sadly lamented a situation where just one teacher who studied Special Education in higher institution is employed to cater for the needs of physically challenged persons of various dimensions. She said the situation must be reviewed.

Mrs Frances added;

“I cannot explain how one teacher, who studied special education can be given the singular task of meeting the academic needs of the deaf, dumb, the blind and all others.
Meanwhile, there are candidates who need personalised attention on one-on-one basis.

If we intend to give the best and all-inclusive education, Federal Government must employ more trained teachers in special education to take care of the different defects among the physically challenged students.

There must also be consciousness in policy formulation that will take care of these persons.

This is because there is ability in disability. These persons can do better if adequate care is given"
