The office of Nigeria’s West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Friday said late registration of candidates or final year students for WASSCE for School examination effective 2022 academic year would not be tolerated.
Speaking in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh, the Head of National Office (HNO) of WAEC, Mr Patrick Areghan said the late registration of candidates delays processes of the Council.
According to him, the non-profit-making organization (WAEC) from 2022 would not announce a new date for the late entry period after the normal time for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) has ended.
“Late registration makes preparations very cumbersome. On the contrary, we do not experience same during examination for private candidates,” the Head of National Office of WAEC official told the News Agency.
Mr Areghan added, “this year, we opened our portal for registration of candidates on February 5, to close on May 16, we later extended it to May 31, but due to activities of defaulters, we kept shifting the goalpost until the end of June.”
The Office of Ghana’s West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is yet to announce the new changes to members of the general public, heads of Senior High Schools (SHSs) and prospective candidates in the country.
