The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced a possible postponement of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) due to financial constraints. John Kapi, WAEC’s Director of Public Affairs, revealed on Joy FM’s Midday News that the council requires GH₵90 million to conduct the exams.

Kapi explained that although exam papers have been printed, there are no funds available for distribution and for sending WAEC officials to monitor the exams. He emphasized that without the necessary funds, postponement of the exams is likely until the money is released.

This financial challenge, according to Kapi, is unprecedented as WAEC has never had to postpone exams due to monetary issues before. Despite efforts to secure funding from the Ministry of Education, delays in releasing the necessary funds have persisted.

Kapi advised students preparing for BECE to continue studying while WAEC works towards resolving the financial shortfall.
