The registration fees listed here are for candidates in Ghana only.

You will also find a complete list of the banks designated by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) for the payment of the 2019 Nov/Dec WASSCE for private candidates.

Please note that for the past two years or so, WAEC has been extending the late registration for the WASSCE for private candidates to as late as August.

It has happened in 2019 too.

Just as we rightly predicted at CegastAcademy.com, your extra late registration for the 2019 Nov/Dec WASSCE started on 28th July 2019.

The new deadline is now 12th August 2019.

Mark my words many months ago …

But you must note that even if the closing date for the penalty period of the Nov/Dec WASSCE biometric registration is further extended to even August, you will still need to pay a hefty penalty.  So why don’t you register during the normal Nov/Dec WASSCE registration period if you can?
