The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced the results of the first series of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates.

Head of the Nigeria National Office (HNO) of WAEC, Olu Adenipekun, said in Lagos that out of 11,892 candidates that sat for the examination, 3,102 ( 26.08 per cent) obtained credit and above in a minimum of five subjects including English Language and Mathematics.

 Adenipekun explained that the performance might not be absolute failure for the affected candidates, as they might be seeking one or two subjects to complete their paper

However, the HNO added that from the existing statistics, the candidates’ results represent an improvement from last year’s performance in which 17.5 per cent passed.
