Oyo Govt Shifts Common Entrance, Placement, Exams Dates

Oyo State Government has on Tuesday, announced a change in the date scheduled for Common Entrance examination into its schools of science from Wednesday 19th August to Tuesday 1st, September 2020.

The Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Barrister Olasunkanmi Olaleye explained that the change was necessary because of a clash of the examination date with the ongoing West African School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) when students are expected to write Economics and Agricultural Science in the 2020 West African Examination Council (WAEC).

Also, the date of the screening test for placement of pupils in terminal classes in public and private primary schools into Junior Secondary School 1(JSS1) in Oyo State has been moved from Thursday 20th August 2020 to Saturday 22nd August 2020 due to another clash of the date of the exercise with another WAEC subject.
