Following the news on the reopening of schools, the West African Examinations Council has released the timetable for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

The release of the timetable comes after the federal government had announced the reopening of schools for the exit classes starting from August 4, 2020, stating that WASSCE would commence on August 17 2020.

The timetable which was signed by the Head of Public Affairs, Demianus Ojijeogu was confirmed on Tuesday by WAEC in Nigeria. It urged all candidates to ignore other timetables which were rumoured earlier to be released by WAEC.

The statement from WAEC read, “The West African Examinations Council, Nigeria wishes to inform its stakeholders-schools, parents and candidate-that the Final International Timetable for the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2020 has been released.

“The Council notes that several versions of the examination timetable have been in circulation and enjoins the general public to disregard them as they did not emanate from it.

“The examination which has been slated to begin on Monday, August 17, 2020, will end on Saturday, September 12, 2020.

“The Council hereby urges the candidates to abide by the rules and regulations guiding the conduct of the examination by shunning all acts of malpractice and obeying all Covid-19 protocols that have been put in place at the examination centres.

“This is wishing the candidates success in the examination.”

The Federal Government of Nigeria had earlier announced the school resumption are for those students sitting for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination but some states have ignored the order to reopen the school for other classes.
