…WAEC exams timetable yet to be published
The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has announced on Monday that the West African Senior Schoo Certificate Examination (WASSCE) will start on August 4.
The minister disclosed this at the briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) in Abuja.
He said, “From the 4th of August to the 5th of September, please take note. Last week the Chairman of the PTF announced that school facilities will be available for those who want to go into revision classes.
“The idea here is that we have a whole month from now till then, those who can and those who are willing; the states who are willing should make their schools available for their children to revise.
“We have done the most we can with our representatives at WAEC and we have, this afternoon, confirmed that the dates allotted for the exams will be from the 4th of August through to the 5th of September,” the minister added.
He further revealed that the ministry will inform the public of the local timetable for the examinations after concluding its consultations with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT), and other necessary agencies.
Nwajiuba also said that the National Examination Council (NECO) and the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) examinations will be conducted immediately after WAEC examinations.
