The West African Examination Council (WAEC) said it will announce today, the results of its May/June 2022 Senior Secondary School Examination (SSCE).
The acting spokesman of WAEC national office in Nigeria, Moyosola Adesina announced this in a statement issued on Sunday in Lagos.
According to him, 1,607,985 candidates from 20,221 final year students of senior secondary schools nationwide wrote the examination.
These include 800,724 female students and 800,000 and 55 male students.
Adesina said that the over 1.6 million students were examined 76 subjects.
Meanwhile, the Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned that heads and registrars of tertiary institutions will be sanctioned over illegal admission of candidates.
Also, candidates who accepted such illegal admission will be treated as accomplice of a criminal act.
JAMB announced this in a statement, saying it will henceforth enforce the directive of the education minister, Mallam Adamu Adamu, on the issue.
According to JAMB, candidates must only be admitted through its central admission processing system.
In 2021 alone, JAMB said it uncovered 700,000 of such illegal admission into universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.
