The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) said Tuesday that its West Africa High School Certificate Exam 2021 (WASSCE) for school candidates, previously scheduled for May / June, may not be held.

The Head of the National Council Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, gave the clue by announcing the publication of the results of the first 2021 series of WASSCE for private candidates on Tuesday in Lagos, reports NAN.

Areghan said that the effect of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is still being felt very much in the education sector.

He noted that the entire educational calendar has been distorted, therefore it may not be possible to take the exam as scheduled.

Let me take this opportunity to dispel the rumors some people are spreading about the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, 2021.

“The effect of COVID-19 is still very much felt in the education sector and this has taken a toll on the country’s academic calendar.

“Therefore, it will not be possible to have the exam in May / June of this year.

A convenient international calendar for the completion of this exam will be published soon.

“To that end, all stakeholders are asked to keep their fingers crossed until they hear directly from WAEC,” said the head of WAEC.

He then appealed to all school principals and owners to adhere to the stipulated deadlines for the registration of candidates for the exam.

According to him, it is important to re-emphasize the role of Continuous Assessment Scores (CASS) in calculating candidates’ results.

“All schools are advised to do this aspect of the registration process well, so that the admissions processes are smooth.”
