The 2021 May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Nigeria has been postponed by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
WAEC spokesman Demianus Ojijeogu verified this in a statement on Friday.
The tests, which were previously scheduled for May/June, will now take place between August 16 and September 30, according to Ojijeogu.
The exam body refuted claims in the media that the WASSCE in Nigeria in 2021 had been postponed. The exam will be held from August 16 to September 30, 2021, according to “schools, applicants, and the general public.”
“We would like to state categorically that the national office chief was quoted out of context,” Ojijeogu said.
The “effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still very much felt in the education sector,” according to Aregan. The academic calendar has been thrown out of whack. As a result, the review will not be held in May or June this year.
“An easy-to-follow international timetable for the test will be published shortly.
“The agreement was made in conjunction with the Federal Ministry of Education and is in accordance with the new academic calendar.”
