    “To this effect, all stakeholders are, therefore, requested to keep their fingers crossed until they hear directly from WAEC,’’ the WAEC boss said.

    He then appealed to all the school principals and proprietors to keep to the stipulated timelines for the enrolment of candidates for the examination.

    According to him, it is important to re-emphasise the role of Continuous Assessment Scores (CASS) in the computation of candidates’ results.
