Briefing journalists on Tuesday in Lagos over the release of results of WASSCE for private candidates 2021- first series, head of the body, Mr. Patrick Areghan explained that the pandemic distorted academic calendar, hence it was not possible to hold the examination in May/June.

His words: “Let me also use this opportunity to dispel remours being peddled about by some people regarding the conduct of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2021.  The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are still very much felt in the education sector.

“The academic calendar has been distorted.  It will, therefore, not be possible to have the examination in May/June this year.  A convenient International Timetable for the conduct of the examination will soon be released.

All stakeholders are requested to keep their fingers crossed until they hear from WAEC. ” Areghan stated.

The WAEC boss also pleaded with school principals and proprietors to keep to time in the enrollment of their candidates.

According to him: “May we also use this medium to appeal to all school principals and proprietors to keep to the stipulated timelines for the enrolment of candidates for the examination.

” It is important to re-emphasize the role of Continuous Assessment Scores (CASS) in the computation of candidates’ results.  All schools are advised to get this aspect of the registration process right in order to make the entry processes seamless.” He said.
