The West African Examinations Council e-Registration System is a user friendly online registration package for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination. It allows School schools in Nigeria to register their candidates online through the Internet. 

The WAEC e-Registration service makes registration easier for the schools and also eliminates errors in registration information which are hitherto made on paper and only detected while processing the paper forms by WAEC. Such documents as Timetable and Syllabus for the examination could easily be printed or downloaded by the School Authorities. It is our belief in WAEC that this new process will lead to a revolution in Information Technology (IT) development in School education in Nigeria .

This manual provides the step by step procedure and training guide for WAEC personnel and Schools Principals/Examination Officers on the e-Registration System.


This manual covers the following:

  Ø      Payment for the examination

Ø      Identification of Examination Officer

Ø      Registration of Candidates

Ø      Reviewing/Editing of Candidates Information

The designated WAEC Finance Officer in the Zonal/Branch Office enters information regarding the payment on his computer and issued the school a scratch card or pay voucher containing information to enable the Principal/Examination Officer sign up to the e-Registration Website.

However, to make the online registration trouble-free especially for schools without Internet Service in their locality, we have made provision for offline registration on their standalone PCs or through Business Centers in their locality. The CD-ROM containing this offline registration facility will be given to schools along with the pay voucher upon payment. This also means that schools could start registering their candidates as they collect entry fees from them. Please see details of the offline registration in Section 2.8.
