WAEC to Begin GCE Registration for Private Candidates on Friday: Procedure now Includes Biometric Features

This is bad news for private candidates wishing to take this year’s General Certificate Examination (GCE). The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced that registration for the 2017 edition of GCE will commence on April 28 and that this time “the registration procedure has been designed to accommodate biometric features that will be used for validation at the exam center.”

So those people who sit in their offices and shamelessly send their children or children’s age mates to go and be writing exams for them just because they need the certificate for promotion, those days are gradually fading away.

This message was released WAEC’s official tweeter handle @waecnigeria on Tuesday. You better go check it out yourself and if you have already paid money for mercenaries, just collect it back. We just hope it works this time.

The exam which is also known as West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates now holds twice a year (January/February and August/September) as against the previous structure of once a year (November/December GCE exam).
