The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is an examination board established by law to determine the examinations required in the public interest in the English-speaking West African countries, to conduct the examinations, and to award certificates comparable to those of equivalent examining authorities internationally.

It was established in 1952. The council has contributed to education in the Anglophonic countries of West Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and the Gambia) with the number of examinations they have coordinated and certificates they have issued.

They also established an endowment fund to support education in West Africa through lectures and aid to those who cannot afford it.
