The new WASSCE date was communicated to regional directors in a circular dated March 12, 2024, and signed by the acting Director, Schools and Instructions Division of the GES, Prince C. Agyemang-Duah.

“Management of the Ghana Education Service wishes to inform all heads of senior high schools (SHSs) that the date for the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination 2024 for School Candidates circulated to the schools earlier has been revised,” the statement said.

The letter urged regional directors of education to communicate the information to all heads of SHSs to take note of the new date and prepare the candidates for the examination accordingly.
