As part of an effort to slow the spread and prevent an outbreak of COVID-19 during the conduct of the WASSCE for school candidates, the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) has arranged for at least 25 candidates to be in a classroom.
The Head of WAEC Examinations Administration, Mr. Godfred Addo speaking in a Zoom interview with Samuel Eshun on Happy Morning show monitored by Avenuegh.com said the Council has reduced the number of candidates per classroom from the previous 30 to 25 to ensure maximum social distancing during and after the examination.
