If for one motive or the other you are not currently enrolled in any secondary school, this arrangement is made for you.


Every year, the number of aspirants hoping to participate in this examination increases, and because of this, the West African Examination Council (WAEC), the body regulating the assessment, divided this assessment to make two series.

This means that the assessment is to be conducted in two batches.

Hence the emergence of the terminology: first series GCE and second series GCE.


The subject combination for the assessment would include Mathematics and Use of English ( these are compulsory), and other subjects to be chosen by the candidates. This choice is to be influenced by the requirements of the candidate’s future course of study.

Note that the candidate is to enrol for a minimum of seven subjects and an utmost of 9 subjects.
