NIN

The West African Examinations Council has made the National Identification Number a major requirement for registration for West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination from 2022.

Head of Nigeria office, WAEC, Mr Patrick Areghan made this known on Tuesday at a press briefing to announce preparations for the 2021 WASCCE.

According to him, the 2021 WASSCE will commence on August 16 and end on October 8, 2021.

“Let me use this medium to announce that as we continue to make progress in the conduct of the council’s business in Nigeria, NIN will become a major requirement for registration for the WASSCE with effect from the WASSCE for school candidates in 2022 and subsequent dates (No NIN, no entry!).”

He enjoined students in SS one and SS two to start registration for NIN against 2022.

“This means that all prospective candidates must register with the National Identity Management Commission and get their NIN. This is in line with the Federal Government’s policy as directed by the Federal Ministry of Education.

“Also, in accordance with the final international timetable, the WASSCE 2021 will take place throughout the sub-region from Monday, 16th August to Friday, 8th October, 2021. However, the examination will end in Nigeria on 30th September, 2021 – spanning a period of seven weeks.”
