WAEC Releases 2023 SSCE Result



The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has released results for the 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

WAEC revealed this to journalists on Monday at the Press Briefing Hall, WAEC National Office, Yaba.

Candidates from eight states owing the West African Examinations Council, WAEC, for various services rendered will not get their 2023 West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, results.

The body lamented that the inability to pay for services rendered was posing a great challenge in the activities of the examination body.

Responding to a question on the states owing WAEC, the National Officer of WAEC, Mr. Patrick Areghan, noted that “About eight states are owing WAEC. We won’t mention them all as some are going to pay.

“However, Zamfara and Niger are the highest debtors. Again Zamfara did not present any candidate for this year’s WASSCE,” Areghan noted.

“Out of a total of 1,613,733 candidates that sat for the examination, the results of 262,803 candidates are being withheld “due to reports of cases of examination malpractice.”

He said there was an improvement in the pass rate as a total of 1,361,608 candidates, representing 84.38 per cent, obtained credit and above in a minimum of five subjects with or without English Language or Mathematics.

Also, 1,287,920 candidates, representing 79.81 per cent of the total candidates, obtained credits and above in a minimum of five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.
