The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has reslated the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for August, 2021.
The said examinations usually hold around June every year, but it’s said to commence as from 16th August through to September 30, 2021.
On Friday 9th April, 2021, the WAEC Nigerian head of Public Affairs , Demianus Ojijeogu made the reschedule of examinations known to newsmen.
According to WAEC, the change was as a result of their joint decision with the Nigeria federal ministry of education based on the effect of Covid-19 on the academic calendar.
Earlier, some local reports stated that the Nigerian WAEC boss, Patrick Areghan announced the cancelation of the examinations for this year. In other words, the examinations wouldn’t hold in 2021 again as alleged.
The new statement flawed purported reports that stated otherwise of WASSCE not going to hold in 2021.
Affirmatively, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria has stated that WASSCE will hold from August 16 through to September 30, 2021.
