WAEC 2017/2018 e-Registration – Payment For The Examination

For the payment of the WAEC 2017/2018 e-Registration fees, schools are expected to collect the approved registration fees from all their candidates and issue one bank draft in favour of The West African Examinations Council (WAEC). This cheque is paid at the WAEC Zonal/Branch Office in charge of their State. 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 accommodate schools that may not have easy access to the internet in their locality and to make the online registration trouble-free, there is a 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.

We’ll give full details about this as you read on.
