WASSCE certificate is issued once by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to only a prospective candidate who sat for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in a particular year.
2019 WASSCE graduates are expected to visit their completed Senior High School (SHS) in person for the collection of the WASSCE certificate as WAEC will not be responsible for any damages after it has been sent to the school.
The Examinations Council in a blog post on its official website has indicated it issues the certificate once and does not replace it when lost or damaged.
It, however, said lost or damaged certificates are now replaced with attestation which is just similar to the original certificate and accepted.
According to the non-profit-making organization, the WASSCE certificates of candidates are issued or sent 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.
