Coronavirus: 2020 WASSCE Suspended
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has agreed to “put on hold” the 2020 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) after several calls from teacher unions.
This follows the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Ghana.
A statement signed by the Head of Public Affairs WAEC, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe said that “this is in line with the protocols put in place by governments of WAEC member countries to prevent the spread of the virus”.
“A new timetable for the conduct of the examination will be designed and made available to all stakeholders when the health situation improves,” the statement added.
