Waec (West African Examinations Council)

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is West Africa’s foremost examination board that conducts the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, a University entry examination in the English-speaking West African countries. Moreover, the council formed an endowment fund, to contribute to the education in West Africa, through lectures, and aid to those who cannot afford education.

WAEC - news, information and structure of the council.

WAEC was established in 1952, after the meeting of the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate, University of London School Examinations Matriculation Council and West African Departments of Education in 1948, concerning education in West Africa, gave a push the council.

On December 1951, the legislative assemblies of Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, and the Gambia passed an ordinance (West African Examinations Council Ordinance NO. 40) approving the West African Examination Council.

On March 2002, the Council celebrated their 50th anniversary in Abuja, Nigeria. The theme of the Anniversary was "WAEC: 50 years of Excellence". During this anniversary the book, "The West African Examinations Council (1952-2002): Half a century of Commitment to Excellence and Regional Cooperation", was launched.

WAEC’s council is divided into three major parts: International committees, National Committees, and Subcommittees.

The council conducts four different categories of examinations: International Examinations, National Examinations, Examinations conducted in collaboration with other examining bodies, and Examinations conducted on behalf of other examining bodies.

WAEC’s vision is to be a world-class examining body, adding value to the educational goals of its stakeholders.

WAEC’s mission is 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.
