JUST IN: WAEC Set To Release 2021 WASSCE Results

Amidst worries expressed by stakeholders and parents over the delay to release of the results of the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) will today Monday announce the release of the long-awaited results.

It would be recalled that the delayed results have been attributed to the slow processing of admissions into the nation’s tertiary institutions.

A statement by the Ag. Head, Public Affairs, Mr. Demianus Ojijeogu, and made available to newsmen on Sunday night stated that the results would be announced at its National Office in Yaba.

It would be recalled that the Founder of Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti, ABUAD, Aare Afe Babalola ( SAN) had in a statement a few days ago decried the shift in the examination calendars by the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, and the National Examinations Council, NECO from April to June to between August and October in the year.

This, according to him, is negatively affecting the chances of final year secondary students to secure admission to tertiary institutions.

Babalola, in a statement signed by him and which was made available to our correspondent on Thursday, said the shift was also affecting the admission plans of tertiary institutions.

Aare Babalola who probably spoke the minds of many stakeholders and parents added, “WAEC which used to conduct yearly examination between April and June and released results between July and August conducted this year’s examination from 16th August to 1st October 2021. Even though it was late in conducting the examination, surprisingly, it is yet to publish the result.

“NECO on the other hand which used to conduct its examination between May and July conducted this year’s examination from July 5, 2021, to August 16, 2021. The result was not released until October 30, 2021.
