The West African Examinations Council has said that it has a 45-day timeline from its last paper to release the results of the 2020 Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination.
The West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination was taken between August 17, 2020 and Saturday, September 12, which means that the council would release the results latest by October 27 which is 45 days after.
News Echo correspondent reports that the Head of Public Affairs, WAEC Nigeria, Demianus Ojijeogu, in a telephone chat said, “Before the outbreak of COVID-19, we usually released it 45 days after the last paper on the timetable must have been taken. We are working on meeting that timeline.”
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folashade Adefisayo, said on Saturday at the launch of the Computer Based Testing (CBT) at the state examination board headquarters that the entrance exercises would be conducted using CBT from 2021.
Only 210 pupils seeking admission into Lagos State Model Colleges and upgraded junior secondary schools in the state opted for CBT in 2020.
Adefisayo, represented by the permanent secretary in the ministry of education, Mrs Abosede Adelaja, said, “The examination will be strictly CBT by next year since the world is a global village. Moreover, you need to add and embrace modern technologies.”
