The new WASSCE date was communicated to regional directors in a circular dated March 12, 2024, and signed by the acting Director, Schools and Instructions Division of the GES, Prince C. Agyemang-Duah.

“Management of the Ghana Education Service wishes to inform all heads of senior high schools (SHSs) that the date for the conduct of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination 2024 for School Candidates circulated to the schools earlier has been revised,” it said.

The letter urged regional directors of education to communicate the information to all heads of SHSs to take note of the new date and prepare the candidates for the examination accordingly.

“The new date supersedes the earlier date communicated to the schools,” it said.

Although no official reason was assigned for the new date, sources indicated that it was to give the candidates enough time to prepare for the examination.


When contacted, the Head of Public Affairs of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), John Kapi, confirmed that with the new development, the country would continue with the Ghana Only Version of the WASSCE-SC.
