WAEC Set to Coduct GCE Twice a Year

The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, says it will soon begin the conduct of its examination for private candidates, popularly called GCE, twice in a year with effect from 2017.
The council Registrar, Iyi Uwadiae, spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria on the sidelines of the council’s “Registrar’s Staff Appraisal Committee’’ meeting on Wednesday in Accra, Ghana.
Mr. Uwadiae said, “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.’’
According to him, 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.
“We have concluded arrangements to commence writing of our WASSCE for private candidates twice a year from 2017.
“This will take place in January /February and August/September every year in all the member countries.
“This development, however, does not affect that of the school candidates, popularly called May/June.
“That one remains once a year for all school candidates,” Mr. Uwadiae said.
