WAEC releases Nov/Dec WASSCE results
…37.9% ‘scored credit passes’ in English and Mathematics
There has been a slight improvement in candidates’ performance in the November/December 2012 West African Senior School Certificate Examinations – with 150,615 candidates, representing 37.97 per cent of the 396,614 that wrote the examination recording credit passes in five subjects, including English and Mathematics.
Announcing the results of the examination on Friday, the Head of Nigerian National Office of the West African Examinations Council, Mr. Charles Eguridu said that last year, only 139, 827 (36.07 per cent) of the candidates that wrote the examination made the minimum benchmark for entry into tertiary institution, while 24.16 per cent achieved it in 2010.
Eguridu attributed the improved performance to increased investment in education by state governments.
Considering the core subjects singly, Eguridu said 259, 259 candidates (66.99 per cent) made credit passes in English Language, while 226, 606 (59.06 per cent) recorded same in Mathematics.
However, 47,289 candidates (11.04 per cent) will have to wait until the Nigerian Examinations Committee (NEC) completes investigations into their alleged involvement in examination malpractices before knowing whether their results would be released or cancelled.
“All reports on cases of involvement in examination malpractice have been compiled for presentation to the Nigerian Examinations Committee of the Council at its next meeting. The committee’s decision on the various cases will be communicated to the affected candidates shortly,” he said.
