There are two ways to register for WAEC GCE:

  1. You can either register online on your own (or at a cyber cafe) at a cheaper fee
  2. You can as well register through a legit agent (make sure you ask people very well so that you do not fall in the hand of scammers).

If you intend to register for the examination, you have the option of picking minimum of 8 subjects and maximum of 9 subjects among the 24 available subjects.

WAEC GCE Registration 2020 Aug/Sept Starting Date

WAEC GCE normal registration period starting date has NOT BEEN ANNOUNCED YET.

I will update this article as soon as the registration starting date is announced by WAEC Board.

Until then, drop a comment below to receive update when it is out.

Candidates who are interested in obtaining the form should proceed with the registration process before the closing date.

WAEC GCE 2nd Series 2020 Form Closing Date

The closing date for normal registration has NOT BEEN ANNOUNCED YET since the registration has not even started.

If you do not register before the deadline, two things will happen:

  1. It is either you miss WAEC GCE and hence go for other O’level examination like NECO or WAEC SCCE next year.
  2. You register for WAEC GCE second series as a walk-in candidate.

WAEC GCE Walk-in candidates registration is for intending candidates for the WASSCE for private candidates, who were unable to register during the normal registration period.

This process will be available throughout the duration of writing the examination, and it commences once the normal registration has closed.

I will be providing more information on this later in this article about how to register as a walk-in candidate, price of WAEC GCE walk-in candidate form and how it works. Click here to read about it now.

For now, let’s focus on the normal registration process.

Before you register for WAEC GCE, I will like to show you how the form looks like.

That way, you can fill the form before you go for the registration and will help to prevent unnecessary errors.

However, if you want to register through an agent, you will expect it to be more than that.

Yet, the agent should not collect more than Eighteen Thousand Naira to Twenty-five thousand Naira (N18,000 – N25,000).

To apply, you are required to pay a registration fee of Thirteen Thousand, Nine Hundred and Fifty Naira (N13,950) only, at branches of any of the following banks or any accredited agent and obtain the Registration PIN and Information VCD:

If you want to register by yourself at a cyber cafe, here are some things you should know:

  • You MUST conclude registration within two weeks of second access to the website during the registration period.
  • You should ensure that their names, gender, passport photographs, dates of birth and subjects are correct.
  • Make sure you print the Admission Notice/Photo Card as evidence of successful registration which will serve as identification during the examination. The Result Checker PIN will also be on the Photo Card. Only Digital Personal Scanner should be used for fingerprint registration.

Like I said earlier, you can register through an agent and save yourself all these stress. It should not be more than Twenty Thousand Naira (N20,000) to register through any agent.

Personally, I will advise you to find an agent that is trusted to help you with the registration to avoid stories that touch later.
