The 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) took off smoothly in the Western Region amid strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols.

A total number of 24,332 candidates comprising of 11,731 males and 12,601 females are sitting for the exams in the both the Western and the Western North Regions respectively.

The examination, which actually started last week with project work for Visual Arts candidates, is in full swing today Monday 3rd August with theory papers for all registered candidates.

In our visit to some senior high schools within the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, where about 6,192 candidates are taking their exam, supervisors and headteachers were tightlipped about the event.

At the time of our visit to the Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS), materials needed for the examination had arrived, and all the COVID-19 safety protocols were also being adhered to, especially, the social distancing protocol in the exams halls.

In a telephone interview, the Ghana Education Service Director for Sekondi-Takoradi, Elizabeth Akuoko, told our reporter Patrick Ennimil Arthur that all COVID-19 patients have recovered and are writing their exams as expected, though under strict observation by some nurses.
