Waec Nigeria: Speaks on releasing 2020 results
The West African Examinations Council “WAEC” Nigeria speaks on releasing the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination “WASSCE” result for the year 2020.
9jtalkative recalls that WASSCE 2020 ended on Saturday, 12th September after it was initially postponed from April to August due to the global pandemic Coronavirus disease that forced the government to shut down schools.
In September, WAEC said it plans to release the results of the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) within 45 days after the exam has ended.
The Council made it known that a total number of 1,459,463 Nigerian students sat for the exam in a total of 76 subjects from which each of them sat for eight or a maximum of nine subjects that must include English language and Mathematics.
Mr. Demianus Ojijeogu , the head of public affairs of WAEC Nigeria, discusses during an interview with newsmen in September that despite the forced postponement as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the examination body does not plan to deviate from its practice of releasing results of candidates within 45 days.
“So, certainly, we will still work towards achieving this 45 days time lag target,” he noted.
On Friday, reports emerged, suggesting that WAEC has released 2020 WAEC result.
The report had informed
“All the candidates that participated in the 2020 West African Examinations Council (WAEC) May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) that they can now check their results online”.
However 9jatalkative did some researchs which shows that the report on WAEC releasing the 2020 WAEC result is false as the council released a statement on its official Twitter account slamming down the rumour.
WAEC Nigeria tweeted:
“This is fake news. Please, disregard,” the statement on Friday evening added.
