Marking of (West African Senior School Certificate Examination) WASSCE scripts of candidates who sat for this year’s WASSCE for School Candidates has commenced, a staff of the Examinations Council (WAEC) has said.
The WAEC official in an interview monitored by Educationweb.com.gh said his outfit will three weeks after the end of the examination start the marking of the scripts, which per our calculations is September 28, 2021.
Explaining how this year’s WASSCE scripts will be marked, he said WAEC’s Chief Examiners from the five-member countries will meet and draw a national marking scheme to be used by Examiners in various countries.
He noted such International prelim coordination meetings are usually held in Greater Accra, Ghana and Lagos, Nigeria adding that the RPCC after the meeting will determine the duration of the marking process and when to expect the release of the 2021 WASSCE result of prospective candidates.
“The WASSCE scripts after the conduct of the national examination are packed into a packet and swapped across the 16 regions so whenever you see the packet you will not be able to identify whether is for this or that school, meaning that the packets are completely anonymous”, he stated.
