The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria has released new guidelines for candidates of its exams to collect their Certificates and Attestation of Results.
By the new guidelines, private candidates of the council’s West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination(WASSCE) can now apply and collect their certificates and attestation of results from any WAEC office of their choice across the states of the federation and the federal capital territory instead of the previous modality whereby candidates were mandated to seek for such services only at the states where they sat for the exam.
Also, the school-based candidates who are SS3 students can now equally apply and collect their attestation of results from WAEC office of their choice nationwide while the collection of their certificates would still be through their schools where they sit for the exam.
Mr Demianus Ojijeogu, WAEC Head of Public Affairs in Nigeria, stated this in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday evening.
He said the collection of either of the two or both attracts payment of a service charge to the council and also to cover the courier service to the destinations given by the applicants.
He, however, did not mention any amount but added that the guidelines had taken immediate effect.
