Last month 12 graders throughout the country were expected to sit for the WAEC exams which would qualify them for graduation but the exams were cancelled by the Ministry of Education in collaboration with WAEC Liberia, after it was discovered that some unknown persons broke into the offices of Konola Mission Principal and took away copies of the test.
Speaking to journalists over the weekend, Assistant Education Minister, Felecia Doe Somah, disclosed that the exams have been printed and examiners have been trained on how to conduct the test from June 27-July 3rd this year.
Assistant Minister Somah said she is optimistic that this time there will be no irregularities, and warned people to stop spreading false rumors indicating that the test has been postponed to next year.
The Education Ministry official said every mechanism has been put in place to avoid the reoccurrence of the Konola fiasco.
She called on school authorities throughout the country to begin preparing their students for the exams which begins on June 27 to July 3rd this year.
With respect to venues, Assistant Minister Somah said it was the prerogative of the WAEC office to determine the venues for the test.
She admonished all 12th graders throughout the country to remain unwavering in ensuring their success in the examinations which will qualify them to enter higher institutions of learning in the country.
Although there have been no word from WAEC head office in Congo Town but sources say all security measures have been put in place to govern the process.
WAEC sources said currently officials are making sure that the Konola episode does not repeat itself, while at the same time some venues will be changed and some remain the same.
