This was communicated by the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa who said these new dates will definitely allow for students to prepare adequately for their final exams.

Per our arrangements, we expect that the next exams will be written in September/October, and we have already started discussions with WAEC on that.

We needed to make provision for marking and release of exam results and reopening so if we decide on October/November, it will be difficult for WAEC to release exams early enough for admissions to take place in January.

Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa Said.
