Ministry of Education announces date of SSCE 2020 exam.
The Nigerian Ministry of Education has announced that the West African Senior School Certificate (WASSCE) exam for school candidates will begin on Monday, August 17, 2020.
This was announced by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, today when informing the Presidential Task Force about COVID-19 in Abuja.
Nwajiuba said the country’s secondary schools will reopen from Tuesday, August 4, 2020, only for students in exit classes (SSCE).
He said the decision was made after a virtual meeting between the Federal Ministry of Education, education commissioners in 36 states, the Nigerian Teachers’ Union (NUT), private school owners, and the chief executive of the review panels.
“It was agreed that the exit classes would resume at various secondary schools immediately after the Salah break so they could take their WAEC exams, which are scheduled to start on August 17th.
“The meeting also decided that the federal government, through the Presidential Task Force for Covid-19 and Nigerians with a public spirit, should be passionately asked to support schools across the country so that they can speed up preparations for safe reopening as agreed.”
The minister added that tomorrow another meeting between the Federal Ministry of Education and senior officials of the NECO, NABTEB and NBAIS review panels should be convened to harmonize their exam dates, which the ministry will quickly communicate to stakeholders.
