The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has set up 85 venues across Nigeria for the coordination and marking of the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Moyosola Adeyeye, WAEC spokesperson, made the disclosure in a statement on Wednesday.
The council noted that the high number of the centres is to maintain release of candidates’ results 45 days after the last paper is taken.
WAEC said that the coordination and marking would begin on July 13.
“Coordination meetings for chief examiners and team leaders will be held in the morning of Wednesday, July 13, while assistant examiners‘ coordination meetings will commence in the afternoon of the same day.
“The coordination meetings would span three days – from Wednesday, July 13 – to Friday, July 15.
“This is to enable our Muslim brothers and sisters (staff and examiners) to partake fully in the festivities (Eid-el Kabir) before embarking on the assignment.
“The council, therefore, wishes to felicitate the Muslim Ummah on the occasion of the 2022 Eid-el Kabir celebration,” it said.
