The West African Examination Council has warned that its long awaited time table for the 2020 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination will be released after the pandemic and that it will not give ample time to candidates for preparations.
The council further stated that it had made available online resources and tutorials for candidates and thus candidates should make use of it.
This statement was made by Head, WAEC Public Affairs, Mr Damian Ojijeogu, where he stated that the body will not give candidates time to prepare again once the new timetable is released after the pandemic.
Mr Damian said and we quote: “The turn-out of the use of our online resources by candidates has been encouraging. We have been getting great feedback. Even those who could not log in initially have been assisted to do so. All the subjects are covered.
“When the lockdown period is over, we will release the new timetable. It is not good that the candidates are idle at home. So, the online resources will help them to revise and it will assist them to avoid the mistakes of those who have written our examination in the past.
The council also said that the new timetable will be announced when the pandemic will be over.
