West African Examination Council (WAEC) said it has finalized plans to release the results of its West African Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSCE) within 60 to 65 days of writing the examination.
Head of WAEC national office in Nigeria, Mr Olu Adenipekun, announced this to newsmen in Lagos on the sideline of the WAEC sixty fifth anniversary celebration.
He said the target is to further reduce the waiting days for the results to 45 days.
The WAEC head explained that since he assumed office 15 months ago, he has been striving to reduce the waiting days for the results by candidates.
“All hands must be on deck to ensure that the innovation, tagged: `Project 60’, is effective from this year.
“For sometimes now, we normally use about 90 days, from the day of the last paper of the examination to release the result.
“For the past 15 months, when I assumed office as the HNO in Nigeria, we have been working to reduce that `waiting period’ by 50 per cent.
“This is what initially brought about what we had also called `Project 45’ but we want to take it gradually,” Adenipekun said.
