The WASSCE (SC) 2021 commenced on Monday, 16th August, 2021 with the administration of Visual Art Practicals (Paper 3) for candidates offering the Visual Art Programme in all schools across the country. The questions for the practical papers were given to the candidates two weeks ahead of the examination, to enable them plan adequately for the execution of their respective project work. Itinerant Examiners have been coordinated and assigned to all schools to assess the candidates as they work on their choice of project. The practical examination will end on 3rd September 2021.
WAEC wishes to assure members of the public that all necessary measures have been put in place to ensure that the examination is conducted successfully. The public, especially candidates are hereby urged to be wary of the activities of rogue website operators who peddle fake questions on social media presenting them as authentic papers.
Candidates are also advised to adhere to the rules and regulations of the examination and to refrain from engaging in any form of examination malpractice which could lead to the withholding or cancellation of their results.
The Council solicits the support of all stakeholders especially Supervisors and Invigilators in safeguarding the integrity of the examination.
The Council wishes all candidates success in their papers and reminds them that they can pass their examination without cheating.
