JUST IN:WASSCE extended to May for All Participating Countries

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has extended the date of Commencement of the 2019 West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE)  to May.

This means that all participating West African Countries shall adhere to the new month as indicated by the Examination governing body.

The Deputy Education Minister In Charge of Technical and Senior High Schools made this revelation, argueing, the move was intended to help candidates have ample time to study and pass their WASSCE papers with flying colours.

The Ministry of Education has said from 2019, the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) will be written in May.

The Ministry of Education met with the West African Examination Council (WAEC) last year, to initiate processes to move the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) from February to May.

This move, the Ministry said, is to guarantee that the nine terms allocated to teaching and learning in Senior High Schools (SHS) are fully exhausted by students as required by the syllabus.

WAEC has also delayed 2018’s exams by a month to give candidates more time to prepare.

This delay will also take effect in the four other English-speaking West African countries; Gambia, Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone, who take part in the examination.
