The West African Examination Council has has given a timeline for release of results of the just concluded West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination – The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has disclosed a timeline when it would release results for the 2020 West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). This Statement was issued by Demianus Ojijeogu, the head of public affairs of WAEC, Nigeria, told Tribune Online in an interview that results for the just-concluded WASSCE would be released within 45 days after the exam has ended. Candidates who sat for the 2020 WASSCE may have their results released soon. The official said WAEC in recent years has ensured that the school-based examination is released within 45 days after the conclusion of the exam. He disclosed that the examination body is working towards adhering to its standard practice of releasing the results with the 45-days time frame. “So, certainly, we will still work towards achieving this 45 days time lag target,” he stated.
However, many students are in doubt of a possible release of the results within 45-days amidst the Corona Virus Pandemic. Recall that the Examination Council was forced to postpone the commencement of the Examination earlier this year due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
