What is WAEC
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is an examination board established by law to determine the examinations required in the public interest in the English-speaking West African countries, to conduct the examinations, and award certificates comparable to those of equivalent examining authorities internationally.
Established in 1952, the council has contributed to education in Anglophonic countries of West Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and the Gambia), with the number of examinations they have coordinated, and certificates they have issued.
They also formed an endowment fund, to contribute to education in West Africa, through lectures, and aid to those who cannot afford education. Since established it continues to be one of the biggest and most globally recognized exams in West Africa.
Dr. Adeyegbe, former HNO of WAEC Nigeria (2004) said “the council has developed a team of well-trained and highly motivated staff, and has administered Examinations that are valid and relevant to the educational aspirations of member countries”.
In a year, over three million candidates registered for the exams coordinated by WAEC.
The council also helps other examination bodies (both local and international) in coordinating Examinations.
The main objectives of the Council are:
- To conduct examinations in the public interest
- To award certificates, provided that the certificates did not represent lower standards of attainment than equivalent certificates of examining authorities in the United Kingdom.
To be a world-class examining body adding value to the educational goals of its stakeholders.
To remain Africa’s foremost examining body, providing qualitative and reliable educational assessment, encouraging academic and moral excellence, and promoting sustainable human resource development and international cooperation.
