The Ministry of Education in collaboration with the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has postponed the senior secondary examinations.
According to the Director of communications and public affairs J.Maxime Bleetahn the postponement of the examinations is due to the delay in receiving the examinations from abroad, and calling on school administrator, secretariats, principals, education stakeholders and the public to take note of the postponement.
He noted that the new schedule for the exams will be from May 19-20 for 9th graders and may 23-27 for 12th graders. He also said all schools will be closed from May 19 to the 27, adding that all school administrators are requested to give their students take home lessons, assignments or projects which will be graded upon return to school to compensate for the closure.
He said the ministry regrets any inconvenience this postponement may have posed to school administration.
