waec

West African Examination Council (WAEC) has said it has finalized arrangements to conduct the General Certificate of Education (GCE) examination twice a year.

The examination for private candidates at present holds in November/December.

But the examination body’s registrar, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae, said the examination will hold twice as from 2017 in January/February and August/September.

Uwadiae who spoke on the sideline of the WAEC registrar staff appraisal conference in Accra, Ghana, said the new arrangements does not affect the May/June West African Examination Certificate Examination for students.

He explained that administering the WAEC for private candidates twice a year was part of the projections of the council in 2017. He added that as part of its mandate to render qualitative service to all member nations, the council is looking forward to a more rewarding 2017.

The Registrar recently warned against “miracle’’ or “special’’ centres for the council’s examination.

According to him, rather than say there are ‘miracle’ or ‘special’ centres, it is convenient to say that there are ‘examination malpractice prone’ centres.
