WAEC postpones exams and are set to determine a new date for the examination

Recall that the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, had said that Nigeria will not be reopening schools for graduating students to write WAEC due to the increasing number of confirmed COVID19 cases in the country.

The examination was scheduled to begin on August 4, but the federal government announced that students of unity schools would not participate owing to COVID-19 concerns.



The West African Examination Council (WAEC), has decided to honour the wish of Nigeria to shift forward the date of its 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), following a meeting with federal government officials in Abuja early this week. However, according to the statement, discussions will continue with four other countries to determine a new date for the examination.

The Federal Government yesterday provided some specific guidelines for reopening of schools in the country. FG added that schools had been given till July 29, 2020, to ensure that their facilities are ready for resumption in line with the guidelines issued by the ministry of education for safe reopening of places of learning.

in other news, The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has explained that Nigerian universities may not be reopened even if the federal government orders the resumption of all schools amidst the pandemic.
