The  West African Examination Council WAEC has postponed the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination indefinitely. This was made known by the West African Examinations Council in a statement on Friday. In the statement, the WAEC Nigeria’s Head of National Office, Mr. Patrick Areghan, stated categorically that the examination scheduled to begin April 6, 2020, has been postponed as a result of coronavirus pandemic.

Areghan said the timetable for the examination would be reviewed after the coronavirus pandemic situation improves.

Excerps of the statement read, “The West African Examinations Council in Nigeria, nay, the West African sub-region, has decided to put on hold the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination for School Candidates, 2020, earlier scheduled to commence on April 6, 2020.

“This is as a result of the impact of the novel and deadly Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) and the serious implications it has for the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, 2020, coupled with the anxieties it has generated among the populace.

“This decision is a demonstration of the organization’s concern and support for the various protocols being put in place by the Federal and State Governments of Nigeria and the governments of the other member countries to check the spread of the disease.”
