This information was allegedly given by the Head of the Nigeria National Office of WAEC, Mr. Patrick Areghan, at a Press Briefing to announce the release of results of WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2021 – First Series on Tuesday, April 6, 2021

We wish to categorically state that the Head of National Office was quoted out of context

The Head of National Office had in his address during the Press Briefing stated as follows:

“Let me also use this opportunity to dispel rumours being peddled about by some people regarding the conduct of 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”

The arrangement is in line with the current academic calendar and was done in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Education

Consequently, 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

All stakeholders should please be so guided.
