WAEC To Release 2020 SSSCE Results Late October
This indicates that the results should be released by late October, 2020 as the council promises to keep to the deadline after the last paper regardless of the challenges posed by coronavirus pandemic.
Since the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination took place between August 17, and Saturday, September 12, this means that the council would release the results latest by October 27, which is 45 days after the last examination was written.
Speaking on the development, the Head of Public Affairs, WAEC Nigeria, Demianus Ojijeogu, 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, Lagos State Ministry of Education through the State Examinations Board has stated that from 2021, entrance examinations into the Lagos State Model Colleges and Upgraded Junior Secondary Schools would be done through the Computer-Based Testing (CBT).
Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folashade Adefisayo, said this on Saturday at the launch of the CBT at the State Examination Board headquarters in Agege area of the state.
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, expressed that;
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.
The parents of the candidates who opted for CBT will get the results of their children within 24 hours after the examination. Education remains the veritable tool to attain greatness as it helps to prepare for individual life’s challenges.
She noted that only 47 pupils were slated for the inaugural exam while the remaining 163 pupils would take theirs from Monday, September 28, to Wednesday, September 30, 2020, at the Lagos State Examinations Board.
