How to receive your WASSCE 2020 Certificate as a Private Candidate.
For private candidates to receive their Nov/Dec certificates they must visit Council’s office in the region they wrote the Nov/Dec Examination.
“Nov/Dec candidates are required to collect their certificate in person from the Council’s office in the region where they wrote the examination, Such candidates must complete an application form designed for that purpose”. The WAEC officer disclosed.
