The council, in a statement by Demainus Ojijeogu, head of public
affairs, WAEC Nigeria, also enjoined the general public to disregard
“several versions of the examination timetable that have been in
circulation”.
According to the statement, the examination would begin effective
from August 17, and through September 12, 2020.
“The council hereby urges the candidates to abide by the rules and
regulations guiding the conduct of the examination by shunning all
acts of malpractice and obeying all COVID-19 protocols that have
been put in place at the examination centres,” it added.
This year’s WASSCE, earlier scheduled for April, was postponed
indefinitely because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But as the lockdown, which was imposed on countries, was eased
gradually, the exam body fixed August 4, to September 5 for the
examination.
The federal government, however, stated that students of unity
schools would not participate in the examination owing to COVID-19
concerns.
It also added that the exam body was considering shifting the date
of the WASSCE.
TheCable had also asked its readers to state their position on
whether the examination should go on despite COVID-19. You can
also participate in the poll .
