PRESS STATEMENT: REGISTRATION OF CANDIDATES FOR THE 2023 SCHOOL WASSCE EXAMINATIONS
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has begun accepting applications for the 2023 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).
According to the Council, the portal will be open from Wednesday, March 15, 2023 to Wednesday, April 19, 2023.
WAEC cautioned in a statement that the examination is only available to students in their third/final year of senior high school.
The examination body also stated that it is against the rules and regulations of the examinations for schools to solicit students and advertise the WASSCE for school candidates in any form, including print, electronic, and social media.
Over 8,000 ‘indebted’ students are ordered by WAEC to pick their WASSCE results from their schools.
WAEC issues a warning to candidates about exam malpractice.
“Register remedial students who have previously written the WASSCE (SC) and join some public/accredited private schools in form three solely for examination purposes,” WAEC advised.
Meanwhile, the exam has been set for Monday, July 31, 2023, through Tuesday, September 26, 2023.
The WASSCE for School Candidates is a school examination and is available to students in the third/final year of Senior High School only. It is therefore against the rules and regulations of the examination for schools to engage in the following activities:
- Solicit for students and advertise the WASSCE for School Candidates in any form e.g. in the print, electronic or social media;
- Register students who have not been enrolled in senior high school from their first year through to the third year and do not have the required continuous assessment records. The grading for the WASSCE (SC) is 70% external examination score and 30% continuous assessment score. Students who for one reason or the other transferred from one school to the other should have evidence of the necessary continuous assessment records;
- Register students who are not in final year or are not bona fide students of the school in question. We have received intelligence reports of some students in public schools who move from their schools to private schools to register for the examination because of assurances of obtaining good grades by these schools;
- Register ‘remedial’ students who have previously written the WASSCE (SC) and join some public/accredited private schools in form three for examination purposes only. Such students are being advised to register for the WASSCE for Private Candidates which has been specifically designed for remedial students and offers them the opportunity to register for the number of subjects they wish to take.
