The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has revealed that examinations for graduating Senior Secondary School students will now commence on the 4th of August, 2020.
The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajuiba, said tests for graduating students will now hold from August 4 till September 5.
The federal government had earlier announced that final year students, including those to take the WAEC examinations, would resume schools.
Schools across Nigeria have been shut since March 19 to contain the spread of COVID-19.
However, the minister said local timing for the WAEC examination will be published soon.
