Cambridge Has Something To Say On Buhari’s WAEC Certificate
The University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate, now known as Cambridge Assessment, has disclosed that it can only release the certificate of President Muhammadu Buhari if he so requests for it.
In a statement on Monday, November 5, the exam body said for it to release a candidate’s certificate, the student must request for it.
Cambridge, a United Kingdom-based examination body, that oversaw the conduct of final year secondary school examination in Nigeria and placement into foreign universities in the 1960s, said this in response to inquiries by Nigerians interested in authenticating Buhari’s certificate.
It said: “We can only confirm or verify results at the direct request of or with the permission of a candidate.”
“This is in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulations, Data Protection Act 2018 and section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
“Examination results were classed in grades by 1 to 9. 1,2,3,4,5 & 6 indicate a Pass with Credit; 7 & 8 indicate a Pass; 9 indicates a Failure.
“To pass the School Certificate, candidates had to pass examinations in a variety of groups. It was compulsory to pass English Language, but not Maths, in order to gain the Certificate.
“The number of candidates who sat for the WASC Hausa examination in 1961 was 152.
“Our records show that Hausa was set in the Northern Region in 1961.”
