KNUST ‘rejects’ entrance exams for 2020 admission as has been suggested in some education circles. The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has declined the plan to carry
out entrance exams to admit incoming students to the university for the academic year 2020/2021.
In a communication addressed to all provosts of the university highlighting the discussion on the methods for the finalization of academic work for the semester to bring the academic year 2019/2020
to an end.

KNUST rejected the entrance exams for 2020 admission and at the same meeting suggested that
WAEC could carry out the WASSCE examinations in September 2020 so that entry of freshmen can be done in January 2021. If the WASSCE 2020 is written in September 2020, it will afford universities the chance to admit students who meet the minimum requirements.
This comes after the school had called a meeting in the Great Hall, Gardener Conference Room, on Monday, 6 April 2020 to discuss options available.
KNUSTcited other reasons, including the improper use of continuous assessment and class performance for entry to the university, since it can not set out fair assessment standards for admission.
Following this, the university also deemed a plausible modification to its school calendar, stating cases
of re-opening academic work by mid-May, should the predicament of COVID-19 improve.
It is hoped that the WASSCE 2020 is taken in September 2020 if the COVID-19 is curtailed.
