West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria has announced the date for the commencement of the 2021 May/June Senior School Certificat examination (SSCE). This was contained in a statement made available by the public affairs department of WAEC.
According to the statement, the Council wishes to inform schools, candidates, and the general public that the examination will hold from August 16, 2021, to September 30, 2021.
The International timetable for the conduct of the examination will be released in due course.
The statement also dispelled the rumours being peddled about by some people regarding the conduct of the exam; stating that the reason for the postponement is due to the fact that the effects of the pandemic are still very much felt in the education sector which has led to the distortion of the academic calendar and it will, therefore, not be possible to have the examination in May/June this year.
The statement added that this arrangement is in line with the current academic calendar and was done in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education and urged all stakeholders to be guided accordingly.
