Head of the West African Examination Council (WAEC), Mr Patrick Areghan has revealed that script of candidates infected with the COVID-19 will be kept in a special bank.
Areghan advised students battling COVID-19 and writing the ongoing examinations not to panic, saying the virus is not a death sentence.
Areghan said this on Wednesday during a monitoring visit to Federal Government Boys College, Apo, Abuja adding that no student infected with COVID-19 would miss the examinations.
He disclosed that the council would thereafter proceed to the isolation centre and collect the script which would be put in a special bank designated for the purpose.
“I want to assure that anywhere we have COVID-19 candidate, we make sure that he or she writes the examinations. It is not a death sentence, there is no stigma.
“We do not want anybody to miss the exams. It’s no fault of theirs. We can defeat this virus provided we take first-line responsibility,” he added.
