The Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) is pleased to announce that candidates who attempted but did not pass the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination and therefore, wish to repeat the examination in 2022, can now report at their various schools for registration.

Principals, examination candidates and the public are hereby requested to note the following guidelines which must be strictly adhered to:

โ€ข Only candidates who sat to the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates for the first time in 2021 are qualified for consideration for a government supported second chance

โ€ข Intending candidates will only be allowed to repeat the examinations at the school under which they sat to the examinations in 2021

โ€ข Only candidates who attempted and passed the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) in 2018 and 2019 are qualified to be entered for the examination.

In order to provide an opportunity for the inclusion of repeaters in the list of candidates submitted by schools, the Ministry hereby informs Principals of Senior Secondary Schools that all earlier submissions of lists of candidates to the Ministry are effectively nullified.

MBSSE now hereby requests all Senior Secondary Schools countrywide to resubmit comprehensive lists of candidates (Including Repeaters who must be so identified by indicating (R) against their names) to the Ministry through our District Education Offices. Closing date for the receipt of all entries is 20th January, 2022.
The Ministry will not, under any circumstance(s), receive entries from any school beyond the above stated date.

The final vetted list of qualified candidates per school will be generated by the School Quality Assurance Management and Resources (SQAMR) Directorate at Head Quarter and provided to the Principal to undertake Online entry formalities as required by WAEC against the final deadline date of 25th January, 2022.

The cooperation of all concerned is highly solicited.
