The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has postponed the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates Indefinitely over Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
In an inter-office memorandum released by the Chairman of the Examination Council to member countries on Friday, March 20, 2020, WAEC said it has suspended the Time Table for the 2020 WASSCE.
According to the Council, their decision was as a result of the negative impact of the novel and deadly Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the protocols being put in place by governments of member countries, which have serious implications on the conduct of the 2020 examination.
WAEC said, that the Timetable and Conduct of the 2020 WASSCE should be put on hold until further notice.
It, however, indicated the above decision shall be reviewed when the health conditions in the member countries improve.
