Again, WAEC extends registration for WASSCE private candidates
Again, WAEC extends registration for WASSCE private candidates. The West African Examination Council has further extended registration for its 2020 West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination for private candidates.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is an examination board established by law to determine the examinations required in the public interest in the English-speaking West African countries, to conduct the examinations and to award certificates comparable to those of equivalent examining authorities internationally. Established in 1952, the council has contributed to education in Anglophonic countries of West Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and the Gambia), with the number of examinations they have coordinated, and certificates they have issued. They also formed an endowment fund, to contribute to the education in West Africa, through lectures, and aid to those who cannot afford education.
Dr. Adeyegbe, former HNO of WAEC Nigeria (2004) said “the council has developed a team of well-trained and highly motivated staff, and has administered examinations that are valid and relevant to the educational aspirations of member countries”. In a year, over three million candidates registered for the exams coordinated by WAEC. The council also helps other examination bodies (both local and international) in coordinating Examinations
