WAEC reverses No-NIN No-Exam policy for 2022 WASSE


The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says that prospective school candidates without National Identification Number (NIN) will be allowed to write this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The council’s Head of National Office (HNO), Mr. Patrick Areghan, gave the assurance at a news conference to announce the release of results of the WASSCE 2021 for Private Candidates Second Series yesterday in Lagos.

Areghan was speaking against the backdrop of apprehension by some parents, following the recent collapse of the NIMC portal.

He noted that it was commonplace to occasionally experience such challenges with the introduction of new policies, noting that everything would fall in place with time.
