WAEC to start conducting examination for private candidates (GCE), twice every year
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says it will soon begin the conduct of its examination for private candidates twice in a year, with effect from 2017.
The council Registrar, Dr Iyi Uwadiae, said, “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 development, however, does not affect that of the school candidates, popularly called May/June,” he added.
