Here Is Why 2021 WASSCE Exams May Not Hold in May/June



The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said that its 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) earlier scheduled for May/June, may not hold.

This is as the examination body has announced the release of results for WASSCE for private candidates, 2021, first series on Tuesday in Lagos.

This disclosure was made by the Head of Nigerian National Office (HNO) of WAEC, Mr. Patrick Areghan, on Tuesday in Lagos, where he said that the effect of the coronavirus pandemic is still much felt in the education sector.

Areghan pointed out that the entire education calendar has been distorted and, therefore, it may not be possible to conduct the examination as scheduled.

Let me use this opportunity to disperse rumours, being peddled about by some people regarding the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, 2021. The effect of the COVID-19 is still very much felt in the education sector and this has taken its toll on the academic calendar in the country.

“It is, therefore, not going to be possible to have the examination in May/June this year. A convenient international time table for the conduct of this examination will soon be released. To this effect, all stakeholders are, therefore, requested to keep their fingers crossed until they hear directly from WAEC,’’ the WAEC boss said.

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