WAEC has adjusted the timetable of the November/December 2015 West African Senior School Certificate Examination following calls from Muslims that the examination will interfere with the Muslim Sallah celebration.
According to the new timetable, Government 2 (Essay) and Government 1 (Objective) scheduled for 2 pm and 4 pm on Friday, September 18, would now hold by 2:30-5:30 pm for papers 2 and 1 on the same date.
Mathematics (2 & 1) scheduled for Friday, September 25, was postponed to Saturday October 10, with Paper 2, holding from 9:30 am to noon and paper 1, from 3-4:30 pm.
The Head of WAEC’s National Office Mr Charles Eguridu who disclosed this said, “Our Muslim brothers expressed concern about the timetable. Some papers were scheduled between 2 pm and 4 pm, and some just before the end of Jumat prayers.
“Our attention has been drawn to this concern and only this afternoon the chairman of WAEC in Nigeria, called my attention and we have decided to effect some amendment to address the concerns of our Muslim brothers.”
