Will There Be WAEC In 2021 (May/June)?
If you have been asking yourself if there will be WAEC in 2021, it is a valid question. We understand that you might think that there won’t be WAEC May/June examination this year. That is largely due to the challenges brought about by the COVID-19 Pandemic. It has had devastating impacts on our ways of life.
Because of COVID-19, many activities, including examinations have been postponed or cancelled altogether. Therefore, the concern that there may not be a 2021 WAEC for internal candidates in May and June of 2021 is a legitimate one. So, let us address the question and tell you what we know so far.
Will There Be WAEC In May/June 2021?
The authorities of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has made a pronouncement about this matter. They said the Senior Secondary School Examination (WASSCE) may not hold in May/June due to the disruption of academic calendar by COVID-19.
That does not mean the examination will not hold. It only means that the May/June WAEC will simply not hold in May and June. Poetic, right? The exam will be scheduled for later dates in the year.
According to the Head, Nigeria office (WAEC) Patrick Areghan while speaking on the WAEC GCE performance, explained that the exam will hold later in the year.
The official WAEC Twitter handler also reiterated this position in a Tweet on 9th April, 2021.
