The 2023 WASSCE breakdown
Patrick Areghan, Nigeria's head for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), had earlier said a total of 1,621,884 candidates registered for this year's edition of the exam.
He, however, revealed that 1,613,733 candidates sat for the examination.
“A total of 1,287,920 candidates, representing 79.81 %, obtained credits and above in a minimum of five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.
“Of this number, 616,914, that is 47.9%, were male candidates, while 671,006, that is 52.1%, were female candidates.
“The percentage of candidates in this category in the WASSCE for School Candidates in 2022, that is, those who obtained credit and above in five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics, was 76.36%, thus, there is a 3.45% decrease in performance in this regard.
The WAEC head in Nigeria also said the exam body withheld results of 262,803 candidates for alleged examination malpractices.
The figure, according to him, represents 16.29% of the total number of candidates that sat for the examination.
“The reasons for this are not far-fetched. Candidates are no longer ready to study, they lack self-confidence and preparations for examinations are poor. There is over-reliance on the so-called ‘Expo’, which is non-existent.
“Candidates got frustrated when they got to the examination hall and discovered that all they had celebrated was fake. This has pitiably led to some of them failing the examination.
