The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria, has announced the commencement date for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates.

The examination is scheduled to start on Tuesday, April 30, 2024, and will conclude on June 24, 2024.

Dr Amos Dangut, the Head of the Nigeria Office at WAEC, made this declaration on Monday at the WAEC Lagos Office, affirming the council’s preparedness to administer the examination.

He further specified that the examination period would span seven weeks and six days.

Dangut said, “I am delighted to inform you that WASSCE for School Candidates, 2024 will take place between Tuesday, April 30 and Monday, June 24, 2024, in Nigeria, spanning seven weeks and six days.

“The examination will be conducted in four WAEC member countries, namely: Nigeria, Gambia, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.”

“We want to inform candidates of the council’s readiness to conduct WASSCE.”

He added, “We are set for the conduct of WASSCE for School candidates in 2024 in Nigeria. The Council also, in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education, the State Ministries of Education, the Nigeria Police, other security agencies and other stakeholders, deliver, on its mandate to conduct credible examinations for the Nigerian Child and the general public.

“We remain ever grateful to the Honourable Minister of Education, the Honourable Minister of State for Education, all the State Ministries of Education, the Inspector-General of Police, and indeed, all our stakeholders, for their usual support and cooperation, even as we count on them once again.”

While fielding questions from journalists about the success of the council’s digital certificate platform, the HNO said: “The emergence of the digital certificate platform has given a remarkable respite to stakeholders in the entire education value chain of result verification, accessing, sharing and confirmation. It has also created ease of processing student’s admission into tertiary institutions anywhere in the world in record time.

“Impressively we’ve been getting positive feedbacks from the stakeholders in Nigeria and also outside the country, various organizations are as well reaching out to us about the uniqueness of the platform. The platform is in compliance with global best practices by ensuring that the data of candidates are protected and cannot be manipulated.”
