FG announces date for commencement of WAEC examination

The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) will now hold from August 4 to September 5, 2020.

This was announced by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajuiba, on Monday during the daily COVID-19 Presidential Task Force briefing.

“As soon as we conclude WAEC, we will take NABTEB and NECO,” he said.

The federal government last week approved what it called “safe reopening” of schools nationwide.

The government said the reopening of schools was meant to allow students in graduating classes (Primary 6, JSS 3, SS3) resume preparation for examinations.

The federal government had earlier announced that final year students, including those to take the WAEC examinations, would resume schools.

Schools across Nigeria have been shut since March 19 to contain the spread of COVID-19.

However, the minister said local timing for the WAEC examination will be published soon.

“The idea is we have a month from now till August 4, so the states who are willing should make their schools available for their children to revise,” he said.
