NIN required for WASSCE from 2022

 From next year, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) would require candidates to submit their National Identification Numbers (NIN) to register for the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) conducted by the regional examining body.

The Head of National Office, Patrick Areghan, who said during a briefing on Tuesday at WAEC Headquarters in Yaba, Lagos that the decision was in line with the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, also announced that the WASSCE 2021 for school candidates would begin Monday.

“As we continue to make progress in the conduct of the Council’s business in Nigeria, National Identification Number (NIN) will become a major requirement for registration for the WASSCE examination with effect from the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2022 and subsequent diets (No NIN, no entry!).

“This means that all prospective candidates must register with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and get their National Identification Number (NIN). This is in line with the Federal Government’s Policy, as directed by the Federal Ministry of Education,” he said.
