Students who are preparing to write the 2018 Basic Education Certificate Examination will not pay for their registration fees because government has decided to absorb it for those in public schools.
A memo from the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to the Metropolitan, Municipal, District and Directors of Education, made the announcement.
The registration for the candidates is scheduled to take place from November 13 to December 15, 2017.
Students resitting are to register as private candidates.
The memo warned that it will “nullify entries of private schools that select school types wrongly and thereby do not pay fees.”
