West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has on Monday announced the release of the results for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates.
WASSCE revealed that out of a total of 1,613,733 candidates that sat the examination, the results of 262,803 candidates are being withheld “due to reports of cases of examination malpractice.”
Patrick Areghan, Head of Nigeria’s Office (HNO) of WAEC, who made the announcement in Lagos, also hinted at his exit from the examination body as he is set to retire in a few weeks.
Mr Areghan also made known an improvement in pass rate by candidates as a total of 1,361,608 candidates, representing 84.38 per cent, obtained credit and above in a minimum of five subjects with or without English Language or Mathematics.
1,287,920 candidates, representing 79.81 per cent of the total candidates, obtained credits and above in a minimum of five subjects including English Language and Mathematics, he revealed.
In 2022, 76.36 per cent of the 1,601,047 candidates that sat the examination, obtained credits and above in a minimum of five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.
Release of the 2023 results would offer a ray of hope for candidates seeking admission into tertiary institutions.
