The West African Examination Council
(WAEC), has released the results of the
November/December West African Senior
School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Of the 172,699 candidates that sat for the
exam, only 66,496 obtained five credits and
above, including Mathematics and English
This was revealed by the head of the
examination body, Olu Adenipekun, on
“Plans to conduct a second diet of the
examination is already at an advanced stage
of approval. It may be possible next year.”
Adenipekun also stated that 1,210 out of the
172,699 candidates, still have their results
being processed due to errors.
He said: “For the May/June examination, we
work with schools and assist them to make
sure that the biometric and bio data of the
pupils are properly captured and uploaded.
“But with private candidates, they have to
access our portal individually and upload
their bio data.
“Some of the candidates, out of anxiety, will
rush to answer the questions without writing
their names and examination numbers.
“We will continue to educate the candidates
such that the errors are reduced.”
