The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) has opened the portal for the registration of candidates for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates, 2023. The registration portal will be closed on Wednesday, 19th April, 2023.
According to WAEC, the approved registration fee for entry in 7 or 8 subjects is GH¢381.24. This figure is exclusive of the fees for practical or oral tests which range between GH¢14.50 and GH¢19.50 per practical test.
However, due to the Free Senior High School education introduced by the Akufo Addo-led government, all students in all public senior high schools will not be made to pay any fee directly to WAEC. Government will be paying such cost. Students in various private schools in the country will be paying an amount of GH¢381.24 for the WASSCE registration. This fee excludes fees for practical or oral tests which range between GH¢14.50 and GH¢19.50 per practical test.
“We wish to inform our publics that the approved WAEC registration fee for entry in 7 or 8 subjects is GH¢381.24. This figure is exclusive of the fees for practical or oral tests which range between GH¢14.50 and GH¢19.50 per practical test“.
WAEC has urged all school authorities to take note of the following during the registration process:
