West African Examinations Council, WAEC, has announced its postponement of the English Language paper earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, September 22.
The rescheduling, which started as rumour was confirmed by the exam body on its Twitter handle, @waecdirect, when a person claiming to be a candidate sought for confirmation via his/her handle, @DR_PEGAN, saying “@waecnigeria sir I’m curious about something the English language that supposed to be written on 22nd of this month I heard you’ve postponed it to 29 is it true cause me I don’t want to miss the period God bless nigeria(sic).”
In response, the examination body tweeted: “English Language papers will be written on September 29, 2018. Please, go to our registration site (registration.waecdirect.org) and download the timetable.”
The postponement is speculated to be due to the governorship election holding in Osun State on September 22, the earlier date of the examination.
