Recall that in April this year, the Federal Government suspended WAEC and NECO examinations indefinitely, because of the spread of the deadly coronavirus pandemic in the country.
The FG noted that it required about six weeks for to complete the examinations said examinations.
But now the government has hinted on adjusting the timetables for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) to bring them closer.
This new update was made available by the Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, on Monday, during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19.
“It requires six weeks to complete the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) examinations.
“We are working to bring the timetable closer.
“I have just finished a meeting with the representatives of WAEC and NABTEB and I understand how that worries our parents at the moment and how anxious our children are to know what next,” Nwajiuba said.
While the ban on religious gatherings have been lifted, the date for resumption of schools in the country has not been given. Students now wait for the government to make decision on that.
