The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced that the West Africa High School Certificate Examination May / June 2021 (WASSCE) will take place from August 16 to September 30.
Remember that the director of the WAEC National Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, had said that the May / June exam might not take place this year due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, WAEC Nigeria Acting Head of Public Affairs Demianus Ojijeogu said on Friday that he will publish the schedule for the exam soon.
Ojijeogu explained that the new schedule was in line with the current academic calendar and was made in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education.
“The council wishes to inform schools, candidates and the general public that the exam will take place from August 16 to September 30, 2021.
“The international schedule for conducting the exam will be announced in due course,” added Ojijeogu.
