Final year senior high school students across the country will today begin sitting for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

According to the West African Examination Council (WAEC), a total of 375,737 candidates made up of 187,574 males and 188,163 females are participating in the exams.

Out of the total number of students writing the exams, 313,837 are the first batch of students enrolled in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s flagship Free SHS programme and 61,900 are private school candidates.

The examination starts with project work for Visual Arts candidates today while the theory papers starts from August 3 to September 5, 2020.

In all, 60 subjects, made up of four core and 56 elective subjects, are to be written.

Review 2020 WASSCE timetable – Africa Education Watch to WAEC

The Ashanti Region has the highest number of candidates of 87,295, followed by the Eastern Region with 56,467 candidates.

Meanwhile, the Africa Education Watch has called on WAEC to review the timetable for this year’s exams as two elective papers for business students would be written on the same day.

According to Africa Education Watch, the one-hour break between those two business papers, would be “strenuous” for the students, and it goes against “international standards of assessments at the secondary level.”

They, therefore, want WAEC to “review the timetable by postponing the second paper to either Sunday 6th or Monday 7th September 2020.”
