85,000 candidates to write supplementary UTME on
July 1 -JAMB
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has urged
GCE candidates to endeavour to collect their certificates
within four years of writing the examination as any delay
beyond that will attract custody fee.
Demianus Ojijeogu, the Head of Public Affairs Department,
WAEC, Nigeria disclosed this in a telephone interview with
the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja.
The West African Senior School Certificate Examination
(WASSCE) for private candidates, commonly referred to as
WAEC GCE, is usually taken in November/December every
year.
Mr. Ojijeogu said: “the normal charge for the certificate is
N3, 500 and only payable by those whose certificates were
issued between zero and four years.
“But from five to nine years is N8, 500; 10 to 14 years N13,
500; 15 to 19 years N18, 500 while 20
years and above will be charged N23, 500.
“These charges are (for) custody fee; for keeping the
certificates for so long because it occupies space in our
office. It will also serve as a deterrent to others.
“I don’t know the reason why people will sit for exams and
their certificates are ready yet they will not come for
collection. What was the essence of the certificate in the
first place?’’
He also said that requirements for collection of the GCE
certificates within Nigeria were an application letter, sworn
affidavit from the High Court, online result print- out, one
passport-size photograph, photo card and identity card.
