In trying times like this, I pray that no child is infected with any disease, nor face any challenge, so that they will have the peace of mind to write the exam. I, therefore, advise all the candidates to keep themselves well and follow the COVID-19 Preventive Protocols in the exam halls and beyond. I also advise them to adhere to the examination rules and regulations. With these, success is at the next junction, patiently waiting for them.

Once again, I wish our first-ever Free SHS WASSCE candidates the best of luck.
