This development was made known by the council’s Registrar, Dr Iyi Uwadiae at a press conference in Lagos.

Uwadiae said WAEC took the decision to introduce the diet so as to address complaints by private candidates that they were not given equal opportunity.
He said, “WAEC conducts its West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) twice every year, in May/June for school candidates and in November/December for private candidates.

“…Now, the school candidates, who wish to retake the examination usually have the opportunity of doing so with the private candidates’ examination, and there had 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.

“The council after painstakingly considering all ramifications of the matter, has finally given approval for the national offices to begin the conduct of one additional diet each year of WASSCE for private candidates.’’
