This was discussed in a meeting held by the Director-General and his two Deputies with other notable stakeholders on Wednesday, 18th March 2020 to discuss the President’s directive on the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Later decisions after WAEC suspends WASSCE Indefinitely

The Ghana Education Service (GES) later ordered the immediate closure of Schools and calls for all WASSCE Candidates to go home.

The Ghana Education Service made this known in a statement issued by the Director-General Prof Kwesi Opoku Amankwa on Friday, March 20, 2020.
