FG Considering GCE as Replacement for 2020 WAEC Exams – Minister

The Federal Government through the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, has announced that SS3 students may have to sit for the General Certificate Examinations (GCE) in November if there is no change in the timetable of the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

The Minister disclosed this during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 briefing on Thursday, July 23, in Abuja.

According to him, sitting for GCE examinations may become the only option for Nigerian students if the government cannot convince WAEC to shift its examinations.

He distant added that, in the event that Nigeria finally meets up with the WAEC timetable, subjects such as Igbo, Hausa, and Yoruba will have to be shifted behind to make room for the writing of general subjects with other participating countries.

Nwajiuba said that the government would meet with stakeholders again on July 30, to review the guidelines, provisions, and preparations for the safe reopening of schools.
