The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has released the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) Examination in record-breaking time.
This announcement was made on Monday by the Head of the Nigeria National Office, Mr Patrick Areghan, at the WAEC office.
He said the examination took place simultaneously through the five-member countries, including Ghana, Gambia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Liberia, with the exact timetable.
WAEC Releases Result in Record Breaking Time
The examination, which ended on October 8, 2021, has been released; today, Monday, November 22, 2021, 45 days after which is a record-breaking time.
“This is a record time, taking into consideration the fact that we lost a week to insecurity during the marking exercise in the South East, occasioned by the heightened tension before and during the Anambra Gubernatorial election.”
“It is, therefore, not true, as you can see, that we did not delay the release of results of the WASSCE (SC) 2021 as being speculated in some quarters. We have kept to our promise, despite all odds.”
“We should be praised rather than being vilified. Nothing can be faster or earlier than what we have done.”
“We do not release results without marking the scripts and processing the scores. We are grateful to the examiners for doing a good job within the stipulated period.”
