Here’s a Little About WAEC

WAEC is also an examination body created by law to decide which exams are necessary for the English-speaking nations of West Africa.

The West African Examination Council, or WAEC, is the name of the exam that Nigerian students in secondary schools must take after completing their senior years of secondary school.

The WAEC body administers the exams and issues certificates that are equal to those issued by comparable examining authorities internationally.

Has WAEC Registration 2024 Started?

For Private Candidates (External Candidates)

The WAEC registration for Private Candidate First Series applicants is now open at WAEC’s official website; https://registration.waecdirect.org/.

While regular registration closes on January 22, 2024, interested candidates can obtain a Registration PIN from any WAEC office near them and from banks and accredited agents until January 20, 2024.

For School Candidates (Internal Candidates)

The official WAEC registration form for 2024/2025 school applicants has not yet been released.
