WAEC releases Nov/Dec WASSCE results


THE West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) on Tuesday released the results of the 2017 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates.

The council’s Head of National Office (HNO), Mr. Olu Adenipekun, announced the release of the results of the November/December during a press briefing in Katsina.

Giving a breakdown of the results, Adenipekun disclosed that 65,483 other candidates obtained credits and above in five subjects and 46,824 obtained credits and above in six subjects.


Adenipekun added that 135,945 candidates registered for the examination, but 133,223 wrote the test.

The HNO also said that 131,485 candidates that sat for the examination had their results fully processed and released.

He said 1,738 candidates were yet to have their full results released because they had a few of their subjects still being processed due to errors traceable to them in the course of registration or writing the examination.

He said, “Such errors are being corrected by the council to enable the affected candidates get their results fully processed and released subsequently.”
