When will the 2022 WASSCE Results be Released?
The West African Secondary School Certificate Examination Certificate (WASSCE) has been conducted annually by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) since its introduction in 1949.
Since then, the WASSCE has become one of the most widely respected examinations in the world, and it is one of the most important examinations that students must pass in order to advance to higher education.
One of the most commonly asked questions about the WASSCE concerns its release date and time, so let’s take a look at when the 2022 WASSCE results will be released.
WAEC with its new rules has announced that the WAEC results will now be released 45 days after the last examination paper. Initially, it was 60 to 90 days before the results get released.
The 2022 WASSCE began on August 1, 2022, and ended on September 27, 2022. Calculating from there, the WASSCE results are expected to be out around November end. Unless they decide to take out Saturdays and Sundays from the said 45 days before the release date will move a bit further.
Reason Why Results can delay
Mostly, the WAEC would want to release all results at once, and thus, they prefer to finish every marking and every necessary thing before releasing results. So, if the release day is due and they are not done with everything, they end up postponing the said release date.
