The West African Examination Private Candidates examination (WAEC GCE) is written twice in a year; i.e, GCE first series and GCE second series.

About GCE: GCE stands for General Certificate Examination and it is a Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) that is headed by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) for private and external candidates.

External candidates (private candidates) are candidates that register for the West African Exam outside school (those that are not currently in a secondary school)

These are candidates that usually register for the WAEC General Certificate Examination (GCE) without the need of being admitted or registered as a student of a particular secondary school.

Can School Candidates Also Write GCE?

YES!!!

Even those who passed through a secondary school but couldn’t meet up writing the exam with the internal candidates can register and take part in the GCE.

Must GCE Candidates Register Through a School?

GCE exam is for external candidates (private candidates) who are not students of any secondary school. So candidates do not need to be students of, or pass through a school to register for GCE.
