The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has extended the closing date for registration of private candidates for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The deadline has been moved from August 17, 2023 to Friday, September 29, 2023.
Boy who scored F9 in all his WAEC subjects
YEN.com.gh reported that a young boy failed woefully in WASSCE. The boy recorded F9 in the nine subjects he sat for in the important examination. A photo of his result went viral, and people wondered why he performed so badly.
The result shows that the boy registered for nine subjects, including Commerce, Financial Accounting, Economics, Geography, and Government.
Students stranded over registration fees
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that some students in the Gomoa East district were stranded on the first day of the 2023 BECE after their head teacher allegedly squandered their registration fees.
The head teacher in the Gomoa Budu Atta D/A Junior High School did not show up at the centre as the BECE kicked off on August 7, 2023.
The head teacher allegedly collected GH¢400, among other costs, to register candidates for the BECE but did not.
Money problems at WAEC
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier published that financial challenges from the government may delay the marking of BECE scripts.
The Ghanaian government earlier released GH¢55 million to WAEC to organise the BECE and WASSCE, but WAEC said they needed more money.
This came after the Minority in Parliament raised concerns that WAEC was cash-strapped and owed service providers.
