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.

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.

When I went on the remita site as stated in the registration process highlighted, under the “Name of service/purpose” Remita is automatically filling “waec result checker pin” instead of “waec registration pin” without an option to change it.

So I’m not sure what to do.

The Mistake is from the steps you are taking. Please read the registration instructions carefully and you will be able to resolve that.
