Abstract:The West African Examinations Council of the four Commonwealth West African countries, to whom Liberia is added with 'associate' status, is the only survivor of the 'inter-territorial' institutions established in colonial days to serve the then four British West African colonies. It can record remarkable expansion and success. Although the council is breaking away from overseas bodies, while at the same time decentralising its work in West Africa, the four governments have no intention of breaking it up. In the article 'WEAC comes of age', p. 397. the growth and the activities of the council are exposed.
