WAEC makes NIN compulsory for exam registration in 2022

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced that National Identity Number (NIN) will be compulsory for the registration of school certificate examinations from 2022.

WAEC’s Head of National Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, revealed this at a news conference in Lagos. He said that NIN requirement is part of the Council’s progress in the conduct of its Nigerian operations.

"Let me also use this medium to announce that as we continue to make progress in the conduct of the Council’s business in Nigeria, NIN will become a major requirement for registration for the WASSCE examination with effect from the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2022 and subsequent diets," he said.

He also said the development was in line with the Federal Government’s policy as directed by the Federal Ministry of Education. And that means that all prospective candidates must register with National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) to be issued their NIN.
