The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the timetable for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
The examination body announced that the West African Senior School Certificate Examination(WASSCE) will begin on August 17.
This was as exit classes in the 104 unity schools and other secondary schools in the country resumed for classes on Tuesday, August 4.
A statement issued, Tuesday, by Demianus Ojijeogu, spokesperson of WAEC, said different versions of the examination timetable have been in circulation and “enjoins the general public to disregard them as they did not emanate from it.”
“The West African Examinations Council, Nigeria wishes to inform its stakeholders-schools, parents and candidate-that the Final International Timetable for the conduct of WASSCE for school candidates, 2020 has been released,” he said.
The Council urged 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.
Secondary school graduating students who live in the five English-speaking countries (Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, The Gambia, and Liberia) write the WASSCE.
This year’s examination was postponed indefinitely in April after it was earlier scheduled to commence in May owing to coronavirus lockdown.
