The West African Examination Council (WAEC) on Friday July 18 released an amended final timetable for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
Per the new timetable, the 2020 edition of the BECE will start from Monday, September 14 to Friday, September 18, 2020.
This year’s BECE has been moved to September due to the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus which forced Schools to be closed for awhile.
Meanwhile, Junior High School pupils were asked to go back to school about a month ago in preparation for the exam. The government, the Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health have provided guidelines and items that will help ensure that pupils and teachers adhered to all the COVID-19 Safety protocols.
Already, there have been a lot of pressure on government from some Civil Society Organizations and the National Democratic Congress to close down schools again and make final year students go home.
