May/June 2020 examination not cancelled – WAEC

The West African Examinations Council has denied cancelling the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination for school candidates .

The Head of National Office, WAEC, Nigeria, Mr Patrick Areghan , in a statement on Sunday urged Nigerians to disregard the fake publication circulating on social media.

He said , “ Our attention has been drawn to a fake publication circulating in the social media, to the effect that the West African Examinations Council had cancelled the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates , 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and was , therefore, set to refund the sum of N22 , 500 . 00 to candidates who had enrolled for the examination .

“ The publication is patently false and deceitful. It is nothing but the handiwork of mischief makers who are out to defraud innocent and unsuspecting candidates and their parents / guardians . This piece of news is certainly not from the West African Examinations Council . It falls short of the Council’ s style, language and factual details . They got it all wrong.

“ The examination was supposed to start in Nigeria on April 6 , 2020 and not April 15 , 2020 , as stated by the authors . The examination fee is N13 , 950 . 00 only , not N22 , 500 . 00 . It is , therefore, not reasonable to refund candidates an amount higher than what they had paid to register for the examination . ”
