WAEC unmask scandal on Cancellation of 2020 May/June SSCE and Refund of Fees

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has debunked rumors about the cancellation of the May / June 2020, 2020 West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Exam (WASSCE).

In a statement by WAEC, Nigeria chief Patrick Areghan on Sunday, the body explained that a notice alleging the cancellation of 2020 WASSCE did not emanate from the council but from the manual labor of the traffickers and, consequently, false and misleading.

The statement says: We are struck by a fake publication circulating on social media, in the sense that WAEC has canceled the conduct of WASSCE for School Candidates, 2020, as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and was, therefore Therefore, configured to refund N22,500 to candidates who had registered for the exam.

The post is patently false and misleading.

“It is just the work of mischief makers trying to defraud innocent and unsuspecting candidates and their parents / guardians.”

This news is certainly not from WAEC. Not enough style, language, and factual details of the council. They misunderstood everything.

To begin with, the exam fee is N13,950 only and not N22,500.

WAEC, as the examining body has not announced the cancellation of the exam.

He only announced a postponement until normalcy is restored.

WAEC could not have made a mistake in the full sense of its acronym.

We wish to take this opportunity to reassure all registered candidates, schools and other stakeholders that once the situation returns to normal, the council will develop a new international calendar for the examination.

This will take effect after due consultation with relevant stakeholders. Therefore, candidates are advised to ignore the post and focus on studying hard for the exam.
