2021 WAEC Registration Form

The West African Examinations Council has floated entries for the e-registration of candidates for WASSCE for School Candidates, 2023.

This is to inform the General Public, Schools Parents and Students that the sales of forms of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE for School Candidate formerly known as WAEC May/June for 2022/2023 Academic Session has commenced.

Prospective Schools are expected to collect the approved registration fees from all their candidates and issue one bank draft in favour of The West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

This cheque is paid at the WAEC Zonal/Branch Office in charge of their State.

Useful Resource

The designated WAEC Finance Officer in the Zonal/Branch Office enters information regarding the payment on his computer and issued the school a scratch card or pay voucher containing information to enable the Principal/Examination Officer sign up to the e-Registration Website.

However, to make the online registration trouble-free especially for schools without Internet Service in their locality, we have made provision for offline registration on their standalone PCs or through Business Centers in their locality.

The CD-ROM containing this offline registration facility will be given to schools along with the pay voucher upon payment. This also means that schools could start registering their candidates as they collect entry fees from them.
