WASSCE Candidates to be admitted to Tertiary if COVID-19 still persist – GES
SHS students who would have been preparing to write their WASSCE exams in May/June this year are likely to progress to the Tertiary level if COVID-19 still persists.
A committee made up of Vice-Chancellors and other stakeholders have been constituted to come up with a road map which will allow the students to progress to the next level even if WASSCE has not been written, according to Dr.Kwabena Bempah Tandoh, Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES).
“A committee has been set made up of vice-chancellors and others to discuss how the children can progress to the next level even if COVID-19 still persists,” he said in an interaction with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’.
It may be recalled that WAEC has put this year’s WASSCE on hold following the occurrence of COVID-19 in all 5 countries that take part in the examination namely; Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Liberia.
Students in all of these countries are currently in the house following the closure of schools.
