No Charge For WAEC12th Grade Re-Sitters - MOE
By Decontee M. Wesseh, LINA

MONROVIA, June 7 (LINA) - The Ministry of Education (MOE) has announced that no school administration or candidate will be charged for re-conduct of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) exams for 12th graders on June 27.

According to the Ministry of Education, this represents one of four measures taken against the backdrop of rumors circulating about the alleged postponement and cancellation of the exam which the ministry described as “untrue and misleading.”

The clarification was contained in an announcement read by the Director for Public Affairs at the Ministry of Information, Lawrence Fahnbulleh, during the ministry’s regular press briefing Tuesday.

Fahnbulleh said the other measures are no collection of ‘flexibility’ fees; candidates should not be denied their WAEC ID numbers for not paying project fees and all candidates are encouraged to abide by the  rules and regulations governing the exams.

He noted that education stakeholders, parents, candidates, school authorities and the public are advised that the date for the examination remains unchanged, adding, “WAEC is confident of administering the Exam from June 27-July 1 as previously scheduled.”

It can be recalled that WAEC administered this year’s national exam to junior high school students on May 19-20 and was expected to begin the senior high school component on Monday, May 23, when authorities of the council abruptly cancelled the test on Sunday, a day before it was to be administered.

WAEC said the decision was prompted by an alert it received on Saturday, May 21, that its Konola Mission depot was broken into by unidentified persons who made away with one copy of each of the nine exams.
