Why is Ghana the Only Country Writing WASSCE in August?

WASSCE

Ghana is the only country writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in August 2022 and most people have questioned why. This is one question that most people keep on asking. Fortunately, this article will answer this hanging question.

Five West African nations, namely Ghana, the Gambia, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone take the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) annually.

However, Due
to the
Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020, the examination dates moved from May/June to September/October.

After the pressures of the the pandemic appeared to have subsided, except for Ghana, all of the west African nations that take part in the WASSCE shifted their Exams dates back to May/June.

As it stands now,
all of the participating nations have already finished their examination. Hopefully, in August, Ghana will also takethe examination.

Reasons why the country Ghana is writing WASSCE in August 2022

Mrs. Addy-Lamptey, who is in charge of Ghana’s National WAEC office, says the Ministry of Education, Ghana requested that the Senior School Certificate Examinationbe written in August and September 2022. This is because the period allotted for the exams was insufficient, and the students would not have been well-prepared.

  1. Education system in Ghana NOW is a mess which COVID has no hands in it but incompetent leaders still use COVID as a cover up.
    These leaders refuse learning to correct things due to PRIDE and ARROGANCE.
