The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the results of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), which took place between May and June this year for private candidates.
Only 1,886 of the 7,166 candidates who took the exam nationwide (representing 26.32 percent) received credit pass or higher in a minimum of five subjects, including English language and mathematics.
The last two editions of the same diet, in 2012 and 2022, respectively, obtained similar results for up to 30.11 percent and 32.23 percent of the total candidates who sat, indicating a decline in candidate performance of 3.79 percent over the previous year.
WAEC Nigeria’s Head of National Office, Mr Patrick Areghan, made the announcement in a statement released on Monday in Lagos by the organization’s Acting Head of Public Affairs Department, Mrs Moyosola Adeyegbe.
Only 6,949 candidates (representing 96.97 percent) have their results fully processed and released, according to Areghan, while 217 candidates (representing 3.03 percent) have a few of their subjects still being processed due to candidate errors, and that efforts are ongoing to correct the errors and release those results.
He also stated that the results of 347 candidates (or 4.84 percent) of those who took the exam were being withheld due to various reports of malpractice, adding that their cases were being investigated and the results would be communicated to those affected.
Aside from the fact that more females than males took the exam, with a total of 121 candidates with special needs, he also revealed that fewer people took the exam this year than last year, with a difference of 7,334 people (representing 4. 85 percent ).
Areghan, on the other hand, explained that, despite the fact that candidate performance in the exam this year was lower than in the previous two years, the results should not be compared to those of the school-based exam, in which up to 80% of all candidates received similar results.
According to him, school-based WASSCE candidates are required to take between eight and nine subjects, whereas private candidates in the first and second series of the exam are free to take any number of subjects, including one, depending on their deficiency.
“As a result, it will not be true or fair to say that performance in this examination has dwindled,” Areghan said, despite the fact that some Nigerian universities no longer accept a combination of ‘O’LEVEL’ results for undergraduate admissions.
Candidates who took the exam should check their results on the WAEC’s website, www.waecdirect.org, and apply for their certificates online through a portal, according to Areghan.
Even though the results of this diet were released five days earlier than the 45 days expected after the last paper, he stated that WAEC would continue to conduct credible examinations.
