WEST AFRICAN EXAMINATION COUNCIL RELEASES 2021 WASSCE RESULT, HIKES EXAM FEES.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has increased registration fees for school candidates for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) from N13, 950 to N18, 000, beginning from 2022.

WAEC Head of National Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, made this known while announcing the release of results of the 2021 WASSCE for school candidates on Monday in Lagos.

Areghan said the increment was due to un-abating spiral inflation in the country, worsened devastating effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The WAEC boss noted that a part of the new fees would go into remunerations enhancement for the various examination functionaries with effect from 2022 as approved by the council’s Governing Board.
