    The West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) on
    Tuesday released the results of the 2017 West Africa
    Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for
    private candidates.

    The Council’s Head of National Office (HNO), Mr Olu
    Adenipekun, announced the release of the results of
    the November/December diet of the examination at a
    news conference in Katsina.

    Giving a breakdown of the results, the HNO said 135,945
    candidates registered for the examination, but 133,223
    wrote the test.

    Adenipekun said 131,485 candidates that sat for the
    examination had their results fully processed and

    He said that 1,738 candidates had yet to have their full
    results released because they had a few of their
    subjects still being processed due to errors traceable to
    them in the course of registration or writing the

    “Such errors are being corrected by the council to enable
    the affected candidates get their results fully
    processed and released subsequently,” he said.

    Out of all candidates that wrote the examination, 34,664 obtained a minimum of credits in five subjects and above, including English Language and General
    Mathematics, representing 26.01 per cent.
    He said the percentage of candidates in this category in 2015 and 2016 were 28.59 per cent and 38.50 per cent respectively.

    “One will discover that the results for 2015 and 2017 are
    comparatively the same.

    “There can be a reason for the sharp drop this year in
    this category, which we have not proved scientifically.”
    He said it could be that some candidates needed a
    particular subject to make up their deficiencies for the
    WASSCE for the school candidates results, in order to
    assist them to gain placements into the higher
    institutions of their choice.

    Adenipekun said that 65,483 other candidates obtained
    credits and above in five subjects while 46,824 obtained
    credits and above in six subjects.

    In the same vein, 98,506 candidates obtained credits
    and above in three subjects while 83,256 candidates
    obtained credits and above in four subjects, and 11,763
    others obtained credits and above in two subjects.

    He explained that the release of this year’s results was
    special because it coincided with the 55th annual
    meeting of the Nigeria National Committee (NNC), holding in Katsina.

    “The NNC is the highest policy making organ of WAEC at
    the national level.

    “The committee consists of experienced personalities,
    with many of them as serving officers in the education
    sector representing a wide range of interests in the
    affairs of the council,” Adenipekun said.

    He promised that WAEC would keep introducing
    innovations that would continually improve the standard of the examination.
