Ever since the West Africa Examinations Counci (WAEC) released the results of candidates for this year’s WASSCE examinations, there has been arguments on whether there is an improvement in the number of candidates who have passed the exams compared to previous years.
This is especially so because, this year’s candidates are the first batch of the Free Senior High School program who have completed their studies successfully.
Whiles others think that, the first batch of the Free SHS Program did not perform better, others think that, there has been an improvement in the number of candidates who passed their exams this year compared to previous years.
In order to settle the debate, the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) have released statistics in the number of candidates who have obtained A1-C6 in the four Core subjects from 2015-2020. Below are the statistics.
From the above statistics, it is clear that, this year is the only year in the past 6 years that recorded more than 50 % of candidates obtaining A1-C6 in all the Core Subjects of English Language, Integrated Science, Mathematics and Social Studies.
What do you make of the statistics from WAEC?
