Education policy research group, Africa Education Watch has issued a one week ultimatum to the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to review the time table for the West African Senior Secondary Examination (WASSCE).

WASSCE commenced on Monday, July 20, 2020.

Africa Education Watch’s ultimatum follows concerns raised about the scheduling of two elective papers for business students; Financial Accounting and Principles of Cost Accounting.

The two papers are slated for September 5, 2020, with only an hour-long break.

According to the Executive Director of the Africa Education Watch, Kofi Asare, the current arrangement means students won’t have “adequate time to prepare.”

Adding that this goes against “international standards of assessments at the secondary level.”

“We may not be in normal times, but this certainly should not justify the imposition of such strenuous examination timetables, which are not in the best interest of the students to be examined. We are, therefore, calling on WAEC to review the timetable by postponing the said paper to either Sunday 6th or Monday 7th September 2020,” a circular from Africa Education Watch noted.
