Several 12th Graders have registered their unpreparedness to write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination or WASSCE, citing lack of text books, laboratories and other essential materials as the basis for their unpreparedness to sit the WASSCE.
It is only offered to candidates residing in Anglophone West African countries.
The academic school-leaving qualification awarded upon successful completion of the exams is the West African Senior School Certificate (WASSCE).
Authorities of the West Africa Senior School certificate Examination or WASSCE in Liberia has revolutionized WEAC to WASSCE, which is to be administered in every senior high school across Liberia.
2017/2018 academic school year is the first time Liberian senior high students will write WASSCE.
The examination is conducted in May / June for School candidates only and in October/November for Private Candidates
Some Liberian senior high students including students of the William Gabriel Kpoleh High School, Don Bosco Technical High School amongst others told FARBRIC Radio that due to late or slow preparation by school administers and the lack of resources, they are not prepared to sit the exams.
The Students are urging the Government of Liberia and WASSCE Officials to cancel the exams this year to adequately prepare for next academic school year.
The Liberian Senior Students said any attempt to proceed with the exams would lead to mass failure.
