The council Registrar, Dr Iyi Uwadiae, spoke with newsmen  on the sidelines of the council’s “Registrar’s Staff Appraisal Committee’’ meeting on Wednesday in Accra, Ghana.

Uwadiae said, “The West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates known as the November/December diet for private candidates will now be conducted in January/February and August/September.’’ According to him, the measure is to ensure that many private candidates, who desire the certificate for various purposes, will have the opportunity of writing the examination and acquire the certificate.

“We have concluded arrangements to commence writing of our WASSCE for private candidates twice a year from 2017. “This will take place in January /February and August/September every year in all the member countries. “This development, however, does not affect that of the school candidates, popularly called May/June.

“That one remains once a year for all school candidates,’’ Uwadiae said.

He explained that administering the WASSCE for private candidates twice a year was part of the projections of the council in 2017. According to him, as part of its mandate to render qualitative service to all member nations, the council is looking forward to a more rewarding 2017. “That is the essence of this meeting, which brings all the Heads of National Offices (HNO) from member countries together.
