Candidates who were expecting to take Further Mathematics, Christian Religious Studies, Islamic Studies and West African Traditional Religion were informed of the postponement of the examinations this week.
According to the official WAEC examination calendar, Further Mathematics paper was to be written on Friday 25th September, 2015 but candidates who visited their respective centres on the set date were informed the paper had been postponed.
Some candidates who spoke to 233livenews lamented the poor communication between the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and them [candidates] as they had not been informed early about the development.
Meanwhile some candidates said they had received text messages from WAEC indicating the papers had been cancelled.
Others said they were happy about WAEC’s decision as it would enable those who could not prepare adequately for the exam do so within the subsequent days prior to the exam.
“I am happy it has been postponed.. It will help our Muslim brothers and sisters who couldn’t have enough time to prepare for the exam because of their festival do so.” – Prince Stephen Nettey, a candidate said.
No reason was given for the postponement however its believed to be as a result of the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha on Thursday.
The new dates for writing the postponed papers are now as follows:
Further Mathematics (10th October, 2015)
Christian Religious Studies (8th October, 2015)
Islamic Studies (8th October, 2015)
West African Traditional Religion (8th October, 2015)
