Starting today, Monday, August 1, project work subjects will be covered in the West African Senior Schools Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) for this academic year.
The tests will end on Tuesday, September 27, according the schedule provided by the testing organization West African Examinations Council (WAEC).
Exam registration includes a total of 422,883 applicants from 977 schools.
There will be 14 people with hearing impairment and 72 people with visual impairment.
Candidates will submit essays for 60 disciplines total—four cores and 56 electives.
The English Language Orals will be the first core subject on Monday, August 29, and the English Language Essay and Objective Papers will be due on Thursday, September 8.Many parents will be relieved that the exams were held after the Minority in Parliament warned that they might not be due to a lack of funding.
Peter Nortsu-Kotoe, the minority education spokesperson, said last week on the floor of the House of Representatives, “Mr. Speaker, the situation has gotten serious as no money has been provided to WAEC for the conduct of the 2022 WASSCE and BECE.”
For a variety of pre-examination activities, transportation, and compensation for examiners, supervisors, invigilators, and depot-keepers, WAEC urgently requires a total of GH 96,694,432.40.
However, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour, a Deputy Minister of Education, rejected the aforementioned accusations.’Ignore the propaganda,’ The Ministry will conduct all of the exams it has planned with WAEC. Therefore, don’t believe any rumors that we’re going to postpone or cancel any of the exams we’ve scheduled. Every commitment to WAEC has been fulfilled, so any attempt to damage the partnership must be exposed, he said.
