The conduct of the 2020 edition of the WASSCE for School Candidates will on September 5, 2020, come to an end for all candidates across the country as scheduled by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
Prospective final year Senior High School (SHS) students officially began the examination on August 3, 2020, with Integrated Science Paper 1 & 2 and Information Communication Technology Paper 1 & 2 respectively.
This year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination will be a history to remember amid claims of examination malpractices and alleged leakage of the questions, an act WAEC on several platforms denied.
The temporal closure of schools amid the outbreak of the virus also made it difficult for the final year students to focus on their studies, some schools even recorded cases of the locally transmitted disease upon the resumption of schools.
Some candidates after the conduct of Integrated Science vandalised school property and at various examination centres officials of the non-profit-making organization (WAEC) and journalists were assaulted.
They indicated their misconduct and indiscipline act towards examination officials and supervisors follow their strict invigilation, an act they believe will make them score F9 and fail the examination after 3 years in school.
As the 2020 WASSCE ends today, the management of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has disclosed to commence marking of WASSCE scripts three weeks after the examination.
The Council further revealed that 2020 WASSCE results of prospective candidates would be released in the first week of November 2020, online for candidates access.
