WASSCE 2017 May/June: WAEC Records Best Result In 10 Years

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) yesterday announced a 59.22 percent pass rate in the 2017 May/June West African Senior School Examinations (WASSCE).

The 59.22 percents represent the number of candidates that obtained credit pass in five subjects including English language and Mathematics.

This figure happens to be the best the council has achieved in the last 10 years.

This is a great improvement when compared with the 2008 results which had just 13.76 of the candidates that sat for the exam obtaining credit passes in five subjects including English Language and Mathematics.

It is also on record that the percentage of candidates in this category in WASSCE for 2015 and 2016 were 38.68 percent and 52.97 percent, respectively.

If this trend continues, Nigeria would have succeeded in in moving away from the era of mass failure that has characterized the exam in previous times.
