|Waec Releases May/june 2018 Wassce Results by maximunimpact(m): 5:59pm On Jul 04, 2018|
THE West African Examinations Council, WAEC, on Wednesday, in Lagos, released the April/May West African Senior School Certificate Examinations, WASSCE, results for this year.
A total of 1,572,396 candidates sat the examination, out of which 923,486 (representing 49.98%) obtained credits and above in at least five mandatory subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.
It was 52.97 per cent and 59.22 percent of the total candidates who sat the exam in 2016 and 2017 that had the similar results, while their numbers were 31.28 per cent and 38.68 per cent in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
The Head of National Office, WAEC Nigeria, Mr. Olu Adenipekun, announced the release of the results at a press conference in Ogba-Ikeja, saying out of the total candidates who sat the exam, 1, 470,338 of them (representing 93.51%) had their results fully processed and released, while 102, 058 candidates (representing 6.49%) still had a few of their subjects being processed due to errors traceable to them in the course of registration or writing the examination.
He also said cases of exam malpractice were recorded but the candidates involved were fewer than that of last year and that their cases were under investigation after which they would know their fate as regards their results, either to be released or cancelled.
Giving a further breakdown, Adenipekun disclosed that a total of 823,424 males (representing 52.36 per cent) and 748,972 females (representing 47.63 per cent) sat the exam and that 1, 328 of them are candidates with special needs including 251 visually impaired.
Adenipekun, however, said the performance of candidates this year compared with those of last three years was fluctuated.
He urged all education stakeholders, especially governments, schools, students and parents to give more attention to the education need of the children.
He, however, said candidates could now start checking their results on the council’s website, given at www.waecdirect.org.
