The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), commenced the May/June 2019 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) today.
The exams began with practical exercises on Monday, April 8 and would end on Friday, June 7.
This come amid the expected clashes with the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), which is scheduled to commence on Thursday, April 11.
Unlike the WASSCE that is scheduled to span two months, the UTME is billed to take place within a week, between April 11 and 17.
But WASSCE candidates who are billed to take subjects like Plumbing and Pipe Fitting, Animal Husbandry, Printing Craft Practice, Auto Mechanical Work, Health Education, Foods and Nutrition, Arabic and French, among others, may not be able to sit for the UTME.
More than 25 subjects will be affected by the clash.
