By Stephen N. Sonpon
MONROVIA, January 12 (LINA) - The Ministry of Education (MoE) has said the registration deadline for the 2017 West African Examination Council (WAEC) exams is January 14.
According to a MOE release issued Thursday during the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia, all County and District Education Officers who did not submit their candidates’ names are asked to do so before Tuesday, January 17.
The release signed by MOE Director of Communications Maxim Bleetan indicated that County and District Education Officers who fail to meet the deadline “should have themselves to blame.”
The release noted that the announcement should also claim the attention of all junior and senior high schools in the country.
The WAEC exams are administered annually to 12th and ninth graders to determine their eligibility for promotion to higher levels.
Twelfth graders who fail the exams are not allowed to matriculate to universities in the country.
