“The council also conducts various national examinations in the member countries except Nigeria.
“Now, the school candidates who wish to retake the
examination usually have the opportunity of doing so with the private candidates’ examination.
“With this development, there has been a wave of
agitation, criticisms and appeal across the sub-region for the council to ameliorate the agony of long waiting experience by private candidates who desire another attempt at WASSCE,’’ he said.
