The federal government has said Nigerian students may be asked to sit for the General Certificate Examinations (GCE) holding in November, if the country fails to meet up with this year’s timetable for the West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, made this known at the bi-weekly Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 meeting on Thursday.
He explained the shift may become necessary since the WASSCE cannot be rescheduled for any reason.
This is coming weeks after the Nigerian government reversed its earlier announcement on the resumption of schools.
It also said no Nigerian school will participate in the WASSCE earlier scheduled from August 5 to September 5.
