The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the final international timetable for the conduct of the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The council made the disclosure in a statement by Head of Public Affairs, WAEC Nigeria, Demainus Ojijeogu, on Tuesday.
He enjoined the general public to disregard several versions of the examination timetable that have been in circulation.
The statement noted that the examination would begin effective from August 17, and through September 12, 2020.
“The West African Examinations Council , Nigeria wishes to inform its stakeholders-schools, parents and candidate – that the Final International Timetable for the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2020 has been released,” it said.
“The Council notes that several versions of the examination timetable have been in circulation and enjoins the general public to disregard them as they did not emanate from it.
“The examination which has been slated to begin on Monday, August 17, 2020 will end on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
“The council hereby urges the candidates to abide by the rules and regulations guiding the conduct of the examination by shunning all acts of malpractice and obeying all COVID-19 protocols that have been put in place at the examination centres.

This year’s WASSCE had earlier been scheduled for April but was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
