The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says the fee for the collection of a certificate was included in the registration fee for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) examination.
However, the non-profit-making organization in a blog post sighted by Georgeweb.org on its official website indicated prospective candidates are required to pay a token fee when they request for the certificates online.
According to the Council, the WASSCE certificates of candidates are distributed to all Senior High Schools (SHSs) across the country 6 months after the results of the examination are released online.
But, the Head of School Examinations at WAEC, in an interview monitored by Georgeweb.org disclosed the certificate of 2019 WASSCE graduates would be sent to all Senior High Schools (SHSs) late September this year.
“WAEC has started printing the WASSCE certificates so in September they will be ready for collection,” Mr Godfred Addo told host Winifred Ampiaw.
It is currently unclear if the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has duly distributed the WASSCE certificates of 2019 WASSCE graduates to the Senior High Schools across the country as it indicated in the interview.
