The WAEC Increases Registration fee for 2022 Examination. Continue reading to see more details.

West African Examination Council (WAEC) has increased the registration fee to conduct 2022 examination.

I don’t know how long you searched or waited but I can assure you that is here with your answers.

The head of WAEC in Nigeria, Mr. Patrick Areghan revealed that the registration fee of WAEC has been increased from #13, 950 to #18, 000 to meet the economic actuality.

Reasons For the Increment in WAEC Registration Fee

Mr Patrick Areghan laid down some reasons for the increment in the 2022 WAEC registration.

He said;

Owing to the devastating effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic which has brought the global economy to its knees, the unabating spiraling inflation in the country as can be seen in the general cost of doing business and the multiplier effect of the unabating insecurity in the country, which have consequential effects on the cost of our operations, it is no longer possible to continue to provide services with the current fee of N13,950.00 per candidate.


Also, our ad-hoc workers – Supervisors, Examiners, Checkers, item Writers and indeed, all examination functionaries, have been agitating for improved remunerations.

We have received approval from the appropriate quarters with effect from the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2022, to charge N18,000.00 per candidate.

We are, therefore, asking all school principals to collect N18,000.00 per candidate for registration.

A part of this new fee has been dedicated to the enhancement of the remunerations for the various examination functionaries and our Governing Board has graciously approved the remunerations, which will come into effect from the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2022.


Mr. Patrick Areghan concluded his speech by saying that they did not consent any price beyond the #18,000.
