Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa has disclosed that Ghana will soob revert to writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in May/June.

According to him, Ghana is doing a gradual recovery learning, based on contact hours in the classroom.

“We are hoping that by 2024, we would have come up to the same level with the other member countries.

“That is why we said this year the calendar that we put out was a transitional calendar. We are transiting to go back to our old calendar when we start school from September/October and end in June/July the following year,” he explained in an interview with the Daily Graphic.

He added that WASSCE candidates for this year would write the examination from August 1 to September 27, 2022, while “for 2023, we hope to write the examination a bit earlier than this year, most likely July/August”.

He further explained that this year’s WASSCE will be written by Ghana alone because the other four-member countries of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) — Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra Leone and The Gambia — have returned to the May/June calendar but Ghana has not.

“We made a case to WAEC, the issue was considered at the international level and they agreed that we write our examination outside of the others,” he explained.
