When Is WAEC Examination Starting/Ending

WAEC examination 2023 is starting on Tuesday, April 3, 2023 and ends on Tuesday, May 15, 2023

What To Expect In WAEC 2023

WAEC, in its efforts to combat examination malpractice, has deployed a new software application called the IEM Differentia Profile to detect collusion during objective test exams.

This new technology can identify most instances of cheating and will electronically generate charge sheets for those implicated.


Candidates and stakeholders are advised to refrain from malpractice, as ignorance will not be accepted as an excuse for any reported breaches.

Conclusion

The WAEC timetable for 2023 is now available for all candidates to review.

The timetable also serves as a reminder for students to remain focused and dedicated to their studies in the lead-up to the exams.

Plan and prepare effectively for the upcoming exams. Good luck.
