NHFB commend WAEC for alowing Visually impaired candidates to Write WASSCE
The New Horizon Foundation of the Blind, (NHFB) Monday commended the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) for allowing the visually impaired to write the WASSCE integrated science exams this September/October along with private candidates.


It was a promise made and fulfilled and for that we are grateful, a statement signed by Joshua Ayayi, Media Relations Officer of the NHFB, a sight-impaired interest NGO based in Ho stated.

The statement recalled that some visually impaired students were unable to write that subject in the May-June examinations, because WAEC was not technically prepared for them and therefore pledged to register them for free later.

The statement said WAEC should do more to preempt the problems that prevent the poor sighted students from taking the exams.

It stressed that “it is not true that persons with visual impairments are not able to write subjects that involve a lot of calculations and that all that they needed was the appropriate processes to read the questions”.

The statement expressed regret that a low vision student of Mawuli School in Ho who presented a medical report on his situation to WEAC while processing papers, was presented with exams papers with the same font size print with his sighted colleagues until the NHFB intervened to get him presented with a point 28 question paper in English.

The statement urged the Council, therefore, to involve Persons with Disabilities in their planning processes.
