The federal government through the minister of state for education, Emeka Nwajiuba announced during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 briefing, that it may allow SS3 students to sit for the GCE in November if they are excluded from writing WASSCE.

“Sitting for the GCE may become the only option for Nigerian students” he said.

FG is considering allowing Nigerians students to sit for GCE in November if they miss out on writing WASSCE. The minister of state for education, Emeka Nwajiuba, made the disclosure on Thursday, July 23, during the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 briefing in Abuja.

He said writing the GCE may be the only option for SS3 students if the West African Examination Council (WAEC) proceeds with the WASSCE scheduled to take place between August 4 and September 5. According to the minister, if Nigeria cannot convince WAEC to shift its examinations for any reason at all, then sitting for the GCE may become the only option for Nigerian students.
