Ozoro Poly Student Appeals To WAEC To Effect Correction In Certificate

AN Ordinary National Diploma (OND) student from Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro, Miss Rosemary Chinenye Nwabuisi, has appealed to the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) to effect the necessary correction in her certificate by restoring English Language and her score in the subject which was omitted in her certificate.
Nwabuisi disclosed that the appeal had become imperative as it would enable her to collect her OND certificate from Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro with which she hopes to further her education.
According to her, she sat for the West Africa School Certificate Examination (WASCE) conducted by WAEC in May/June, 2008 at Universal Preparatory School, Uromi, Edo State, where she had C4 in English Language among other subjects.
Continuing, the Science Laboratory Technology graduate said with the computer print-out of her WASCE result, she was offered admission into Delta State Polytechnic, Ozoro in 2012.
Speaking further, Nwabuisi said that she was greatly worried when she collected her WAEC certificate later in the year (2012) and realised that English Language was omitted in the certificate.
“Having seen the omission, I complained but was told not worry since the subject (English Language) is in the result that the school gave to me and, also, in the WAEC master sheet”, the student said, adding that when she went for clearance in her school upon the completion of her OND, she was told that there was no English Language in her WAEC certificate.
This development, according to her, made her to go to WAEC office in Benin City where she lodged a complaint, pointing out that upon her complaint, the certificate that was earlier issued to her was collected from her for onward movement to WAEC headquarters, Lagos for correction, even as she said that a letter of omission of English Language in WAEC certificate was given to her.
Nwabuisi disclosed further that the letter of omission of English Language that was given to her by WAEC was rejected by the polytechnic authorities who, she said, claimed that the subject (English Language) was cancelled and no longer in WAEC website, a development that denied her the opportunity of doing her clearance.
“When I went back to WAEC office in Benin City in February this year to inform them about the rejection of the letter of omission that they gave to me, I was told that it may take between 10 months and one year for WAEC to effect the correction”, she added while appealing to the authorities of the school where she wrote the examination to, also, help her in putting pressure on WAEC to effect the correction on her result as quickly as possible.
