WAEC Release 2011 Nov/Dec Examination Results, Records 45% Pass
More than 40 per cent of the 404,863 candidates who wrote the 2011 November/December West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), scored credit passes in five subjects, including English and mathematics.
Head of the Nigerian National Office, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae, who announced the results yesterday at the WAEC Headquarters in Yaba, Lagos, said 176,848 candidates, representing 45.62 per cent made the benchmark for admission into universities.
He said the results are better compared to last year’s where only 20.04 per cent of the 309,431 candidates that sat for the examination reached the same benchmark.
This year’s results also showed that 60.86 per cent of the candidates made credit and above in mathematics, while 59.82 made same in English language.
Only 43.06 per cent of the candidates recorded credit in English, while 48.88 per cent made it in mathematics last year.
The percentage of results withheld because of malpractice also dropped this year to 9.65 (39, 066) compared with 16.73 per cent (51,876) last year.
Uwadiae attributed the better performance recorded this year to reforms in the education sector by various governments.
He said: “WAEC is just a mirror, telling how candidates have performed in any given examination. The result may be said to be better because some states have begun to address issues in the sector, by providing needed infrastructure.”
