The non-profit-making organization (WAEC) has wished all candidates success in the 30th edition of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) starting Monday, September 14 to September 18, 2020.
The Head of National Office, WAEC, Wendy E. Addy-Lamptey speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, advised the prospective candidates to focus on their books and learn to pass with flying colours.
She said “If candidates apply themselves to learning they will perform creditably in the examination, thus they have to focus on their books and should not be led astray by fake contents on social media”
Mrs Wendy E. Andy-Lamptey furthered that this year’s Basic Education Certificate (BECE) will be administered under what has amid the outbreak of the novel coronavirus become known as new normal.
Prospective candidates and examination officials are, therefore, entreated to adhere to the COVID-19 safety protocols which include regular washing of hands, wearing of a nose mask and maintaining social distancing.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) further urged Examination officials, especially external supervisors and internal invigilators to be guided by the rules governing the conduct of the examination.
