WAEC Plan to Conduct GCE Twice a Year | 2020 Latest Updates

WAEC Plan to Conduct GCE Twice a Year: The West African Examinations Council is West Africa’s foremost examining 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 to examining authorities internationally.

Their mission still remains to remain Africa’s foremost examining body, providing qualitative and reliable educational assessment, encouraging academic and moral excellence and promoting sustainable human resource development and international co-operation.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has disclosed that the conduct of its examination for private candidates would be twice in a year with effect from 2017.

This was made known by the council Registrar, Dr Iyi Uwadiae, who interacted with newsmen at the Registrar’s Staff Appraisal Committee meeting held on Wednesday in Accra, Ghana.

He added that the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates known as the November/December diet for private candidates will now be conducted in January/February and August/September.

He said the measure is to ensure that many private candidates, who desire the certificate for various purposes, will have the opportunity of writing the examination and acquire the certificate.

He also added that they have concluded arrangements to commence next year. He noted that this development will not affect that of May/June, that remains once a year for all schools candidates.

He concluded by saying this is part of its mandate to render qualitative service to all member nations, the council is looking forward to a more rewarding.
