The management of the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) says it will on the next week of this month June 2020 release the official 2020 WASSCE timetable for prospective candidates.
According to Mr. Godfred Addo, the WAEC Head of school Examinations Administration, the Council has almost finished with the 2020 Wassce timetable for school candidates.
Mr. Godfred Addo speaking in a zoom interview with Samuel Eshun on Happy Morning show monitored by Georgeweb.org disclosed that the 2020 WASSCE question papers, other examinations materials, and stationaries are also ready.
He noted that the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) will start in August this year and ends on the first week of September, 2020.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) earlier in a statement copied to Georgeweb.org said amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the Council has suspended the 2020 WASSCE timetable.
However, it assured that a new timetable will be made available to the general public and relevant stakeholders when the COVID-19 situation is brought under control, consequently the new release of the timetable next week.
The Deputy Director of Public Affairs of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Mrs. Agnes Teye-Cudjoe in the Zoom interview added that candidates in Ghana will be writing the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in August but not the Ghana Exams.
She explained that all the five English-speaking West African countries: Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, the Gambia, and Liberia have agreed to partake in the annual West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Mrs. Agnes Teye-Cudjoe furthered that the Examination Council is ready for the conduct of the 2020 WASSCE for school candidates despite the novel coronavirus that has claimed at least 117 lives as of the time writing this post.
