WAEC disowns fake 2020 exam timetable, says exam kicks off August 17


The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced the release of the timetable for the 2020 senior secondary school certificate examination (WASSCE).

The examination council disclosed this through a statement on its official Twitter handle signed by  Demianus Ojijeogu, the WAEC Head of Public Affairs.

“The West African Examination Council (WAEC) wishes to inform its stakeholders-schools, parent and candidates that the Final International timetable for the conduct of WASSCE for school candidates, 2020 has been released,” the statement read.

According to the examination body, several versions of the timetable have been circulated, but should be disregarded, because “they did not emanate from the council.”

The Council said its examination would commence on Monday, August 17.

“The examination which has been slated to begin on Monday, August 17, 2020, will end on Saturday, September 12, 2020.

“The Council hereby urges the candidates to abide by the rules and regulations guiding the conduct of the examination by shunning all acts of malpractice and obeying all Covid-19 protocols that have been put in place at the examination centres,” the statement further read.

Schools across the country have been resuming in preparation for the examination after five months break due to COVID-19 pandemic.
