The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) embraces Computer-Based Testing (CBT) for the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE).

On Monday, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) announced the adoption of the Computer-Based Test mode, replacing the traditional paper and pencil test model for the Senior School Certificate Examination.
