Take your time and study this post if you are seeking the WAEC Registration Portal. In this post, you will discover how to access the portal as well as how to register for it.

This is to inform the general public, schools, parents, and students of the registration portal of the WAEC West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE for private candidates (WAEC GCE).

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) began conducting two series of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination for Private Candidates in 2018.

WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2022-Second Series would be an urban-based examination.

However, it is intended to help candidates who have deficiencies in their WASSCE results bridge the gap.

Also, Nineteen (19) subjects would be available for the examination.

However, they advise prospective candidates to visit the Council’s corporate website @ www.waecnigeria.org to confirm available examination towns and subjects before obtaining the registration PIN.

Candidates should also note that the 2021 WAEC GCE registration procedure has accommodated biometric features that will be used for validation at the examination centres.
