WAEC's vision is to be a world-class examining body, adding value to the educational goals of its numerous stakeholders. It's mission is that of West Africa's foremost examining body, developing and maintaining internationally accepted procedures in examinations, providing qualitative and reliable educational assessment, encouraging academic and moral excellence among the youth and promoting sustainable human resource development, mutual understanding and international cooperation.
In its fifty-five years of existence, the Council has achieved its mission in very large measure. For instance it has over the years developed a team of well-trained and highly motivated staff and has administered examinations that are both valid and relevant to the educational aspirations of member countries. Its certificates enjoy international recognition. WAEC has also been promoting the ideals of hardwork and honesty in the youth through its awards for outstanding performance in its examinations.
The Council conducts several international and national examinations in all member countries except Nigeria where it has shed all but one of its examinations, The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates in May/June and Private candidates in November/December.
