The Nigerian government on Monday announced the commencement date for the West African Examination Council (WAEC) examination for 2020.
The federal government had postponed WAEC and NECO indefinitely in April due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Speaking at the daily Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja on Monday, Emeka Nwajiuba, Minister of State for Education, said this year’s WAEC examinations would commence on August 4.
Urging parents to take note of the exam date, the minister said the examination would hold from August 4th to September 5th 2020.
“WAEC will commence from the 4th of August to the 5th of September. Parents please take note”, he said.
Nwajiuba added that other exams would also hold after WAEC had been concluded.
He said, “As soon as we concluded WAEC, we will take NABTEB and NECO”.
This development is coming after the federal government had approved the reopening of schools strictly for final year students in primary and secondary schools.
