The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced that the 2021 May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), will take place from August 16 to September 30.
Recall that the Head, WAEC National Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, had said the May/June examination may not hold this year due to the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the acting Head of Public Affairs, WAEC Nigeria, Demianus Ojijeogu, on Friday said it will soon release the timetable for the examination.
Ojijeogu explained that the new timetable was in line with the current academic calendar and was done in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education.
“The council wishes to inform schools, candidates and the general public that the examination will hold from August 16 to September 30, 2021.
“The international timetable for the conduct of the examination will be released in due course,” Ojijeogu added
