WAEC to release 2017 WASSCE results Wednesday
By Mojeed Alabi
In fulfilment of its pledge to make the results of its examinations available within 60 days of their conduct, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has promised to release the results of its 2017 May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) latest next Wednesday, July 19.
In a statement issued by the examination body and signed by the Head of its Public Affairs Unit, Mr. Demianus Ojijeogu, WAEC stated that subsequently the results of all its exams will be ready within 45 days.
The new development, the body stated, was the outcome of its new innovation tagged #Project60, which it noted was launched in March this year.
The statement reads in part: “The project was an innovation designed by the management of the Council in Nigeria to reduce the waiting period for the release of results of candidates from 90days to 60days after the conduct of the examination for this diet, and to 45 days in subsequent WASSCE diets.
“Project 60′ was a huge success in its maiden edition with the conduct, marking, processing and release of the results of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2017 because all hands were on deck to ensure the achievement of this great feat. We also wish to inform our stakeholders and the nation at large that the waiting period for the release of the results of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2017 is over as the results will be released on or before Wednesday, July 19, 2017.”
