WAEC Releases Fresh Guidelines For 2020 Examination


The West African Examination Council has released guidelines for the conduct of the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.

Recall that LIFESTYLEGIST reported that the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba announced that the 2020 WASSCE would hold between August 4 and September 5, 2020.

The Head of the Nigeria National Office of WAEC, Mr Patrick Areghan, appealed to state governments and corporate organisations to release funds to provide personal protective equipment (PPEs) for officials who would conduct the forthcoming examination.

He added that, the federal and state governments have rolled out measures/protocols in conducting the examination to contain the spread of COVID-19.

According to him, all schools must provide wash-hand buckets with running water, soaps, hand sanitizers and thermometer hand-gun to check the temperature of all concerned.

Continuing, he said supervisors, invigilators, inspectors, candidates and school officials must wear face masks, wash and sanitize their hands daily and throughout the duration of the examination.

He assured the general public that social/physical distancing in the examination halls will be strictly adhered to as candidates will be required to sit two metres apart.  

It should be noted that the final international timetable had been sent to all the WAEC zonal and branch offices for onward dispatch to schools, federal and state ministries of education.
