The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said it will not be possible for the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) to hold in May/June. The Council’s Head of National Office (HNO), Mr Patrick Areghan, gave the hint while announcing the release of results of the 2021 first series of the WASSCE for private candidates on Tuesday in Lagos, NAN reports. Areghan said the effect of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is still much felt in the education sector. He noted that the entire education calendar has been distorted, therefore, it may not be possible to conduct the examination as scheduled. “Let me use this opportunity to dispel rumours being peddled about by some people regarding the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, 2021. “The effect of the COVID-19 is still very much felt in the education sector and this has taken its toll on the academic calendar in the country. “It is, therefore, not going to be possible to have the examination in May/June this year. A convenient international timetable for the conduct of this examination will soon be released. “To this effect, all stakeholders are, therefore, requested to keep their fingers crossed until they hear directly from WAEC,’’ the WAEC boss said. He then appealed to all the school principals and proprietors to keep to the stipulated timelines for the enrolment of candidates for the examination. According to him, it is important to re-emphasise 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.’’ Source WAEC 2021 Will Not Hold in May/June
