The Federal Government has mandated the West African Examinations Council to conduct National Identification Number registration for candidates registering for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
This was disclosed in a memorandum to zonal coordinators, titled, ‘Registration Of Candidates For WASSCE (SC) And PC With The National Identification Number (NIN)’.
According to the memo, “To this end, Management has directed all Zonal Coordinators, Branch Controllers and Officers in Charge of Offices to sensitize all schools (Principals, Proprietors) Candidates and all stakeholders in their areas of jurisdiction on this new development.
“For emphasis only, candidates with National Identification Numbers (NIN) would be eligible to register for WASSCE (SC) or WASSCE (PC).
“It is important that all stakeholders are sensitized early enough as registration for WASSCE (SC) would soon begin.”
