The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has asked the public to be cautious of some remedial and virtual schools that are promising to register candidates for the school edition of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The council said the WASSCE for school candidates was exclusive to final year students of recognized public and private senior high schools (SHS) who had undergone three years of education and not those who desired to re-sit the exams.
A statement issued by the Public Affairs Officer of WAEC National Office, Winifred Ampiaw said the examination had a 30 per cent continuous assessment component.
It said persons who registered through the remedial and virtual schools did so at their own risk as the council would match the data of all candidates who register for the WASCCE for school candidates, 2020 with existing information in its database.
"Candidates who are not bona fide students of recognised public and private SHS are regarded as unqualified candidates and would have their registration nullified", it said.
