WASSCE for private candidates
WASSCE for Private Candidates (January/February and November/December), also known as General Certificate Examination (GCE) or WAEC GCE, is a private examination and uniforms are not required.
This examination is offered during early spring (known as the first series) or autumn (known as the second series), and it is usually taken by secondary school leavers who want to correct deficiencies in their results.
The results are available by March or December, usually 45 days after the last paper has been written.
