The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) on Monday released the result of the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The Head of the Nigeria National Office of the Council, Mr. Patrick Areghan disclosed this on Monday stating a total of 80.56 percent have been fully processed, and 19.44 percent are still being processed due to some issues being resolved.
Areghan revealed that One Million, Five Hundred and Seventy-Three Thousand, Eight Hundred and Forty-Nine (1,573,849) candidates registered for the examination, and 1,560,261 candidates sat for the examination.
“The examination, which was an international one, took place simultaneously throughout the five-member countries of the Council – The Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone, using the same International Timetable.
“The examination spanned seven weeks, between August 16 and October 8, 2021. Throughout the period, we were faced with serious security challenges in the South East (IPOB and ESN sit-at-home order) and banditry, kidnapping, insurgency, etc, in the north and other parts of the country. All these, coupled with the continuous effect of the COVID-19 Pandemic, made the whole exercise a Herculean one.”
