Breaking: WAEC releases 2021 WASSCE results, postpones exams indefinitely over Covid-19
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has, on Tuesday, released the 2020/2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results.
The Head of the Examination body, Mr. Patrick Areghan disclosed this to newsmen in Lagos.
Mr. Areghan also announced the postponement of the conduct of 2021 examination for school candidates indefinitely due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Briefing journalists over the development, Areghan explained:
“Let me also use this opportunity to dispel rumours being peddled about by some people regarding the conduct of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2021.
“The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still very much felt in the education sector.
“The academic calendar has been distorted. It will, therefore, not be possible to have the examination in May/June this year.
“A convenient International Timetable for the conduct of the examination will soon be released.
“All stakeholders are requested to keep their fingers crossed until they hear from WAEC.”
Areghan also appealed to all school principals and proprietors to keep to the stipulated timelines for the enrolment of candidates for the examination.
“It is important to re-emphasize the role of Continuous Assessment Scores (CASS) in the computation of candidates’ results.
“All schools are advised to get this aspect of the registration process right in order to make the entry processes seamless,” he noted.
