A relative of the students said the school authorities claimed that students might fail this year's WASSCE examinations due to the coronavirus which caused schools to be locked down. They further explained that students were not adequately prepared for the exams that the money gotten from the students will be used to settle the invigilators. It was further disclosed that schools in the rural areas were paying N1500 whiles urban schools were being charged N2,000.    

“The school management held meetings with their students and it was agreed they pay the N2,000 to settle WAEC invigilators to give them way for exam cheats.

“School principals in public secondary schools in Imo State are charging WAEC students N2,000 per subject as sorting fees to settle WAEC invigilators.

“They said the money will be to allow their students to engage in exam malpractices in the various subjects because of their unpreparedness for the exams caused by COVID-19 closure of schools since March 2020,” the relative said as he pleaded anonymity.

“Other public secondary schools in rural areas are paying N1,500 against N2,000 paid in urban public schools.

“The schools came up with the plan so they can collect money from the students.

“The public schools are to generate over N300,000 per day and the maximum they will give WAEC invigilators will be N50,000 while the balance will be for the school management,” he added.
