Waec Results Now To Be Released 60 Days After Exam...
The West African Examination Council [WAEC] has made known to the general public that the council has decided to release examination results 60days after the last examination prior to the last 90 days earlier been released.
The WAEC HNO Olu Adenipekun, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the waiting days will now be 60 days as against 90 days previously.
Mr. Adenipekun spoke with NAN on the side-line of the councils 65th anniversary celebration which began on Thursday in Lagos.
According to him, the development is one of such steps being taken by the council to meet its mandate of delivering quality service to all stakeholders.
All hands must be on deck to ensure that the innovation, tagged: 'Project 60, is effective from this year.
For sometimes now, we normally use about 90 days, from the day of the last paper of the examination to release the result.
For the past 15 months, when I assumed office as the HNO in Nigeria, we have been working to reduce that 'waiting period by 50 per cent.
This is what initially brought about what we had also called 'Project 45 but we want to take it gradually, Mr. Adenipekun said.
He told NAN that for the 2017 May/June WASSCE, which is about to start, the intention of the board was to release the result within 60 to 65 days.
So, this is how we came about Project 60; and in the coming years, the council will talk about 'Project 45, he said.
He added that council was hoping that in the next two years, it would be able to release results of its examinations within 45 days after the last paper is taken.
