The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Education, has authorized the West African Examination Board to register the national ID number for candidates who sign up for the West African High School Certificate Exam.
This was disclosed in a memo to the regional coordinator, which was titled “Registration Of Candidates For WASSCE (SC) And PC With The National Identification Number (NIN)’.
The memo partly reads:
“To this end, Management has directed all Zonal Coordinators, Branch Controllers and Officers in Charge of Offices to sensitise 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 sensitised early enough as registration for WASSCE (SC) would soon begin.”
