26% Pass Recorded as WAEC Publishes Jan/Feb Diet Results.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has released the results of the newly introduced February diet of the Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
Out of the 11,721 candidates who took part in the exam, only 1,937 candidates, representing 26.01 percent, obtained minimum credits and above in five subjects including English Language and Mathematics.
Announcing the release of the result today at the Lagos headquarters of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), the Head of Nigeria’s Office, Mr. Olu Adenipekun, said he was impressed with the turnout of the candidates and the release of the results in less than one month after the conduct of the examination.
He added that the results of 1,937 candidates, representing 9.03 percent of the total candidature were withheld by the Council.
According to him, Nigeria blazed the trail by commencing the new diet among the WAEC-member nations, saying subsequent editions would not only record more candidates but also better performance.
