A total of 977 schools have registered for this year’s exams with a total of 422,883 candidates expected to write the exams

There will be 72 with visual impairment and 14 with hearing impairment.

In all 60 subjects, comprising four cores and 56 electives, will be written by candidates.

The first core subject will be the English Language Orals on Monday, August 29 while its essay and objective papers will be written on Thursday, September 8.

The conduct of the exams will come as a relief to many a parent after the Minority in Parliament warned that the exams may not be conducted as a result of lack of funds.

“Mr. Speaker, the situation has become dire as no money has been released to WAEC for the conduct of the 2022 WASSCE and BECE,” Minority Spokesperson on Education Peter Nortsu-Kotoe said on the floor of Parliament last week.

Every obligation has been met with WAEC, so every attempt that seeks to mar the relationship must be discredited,” he said.
