Standards drop as WAEC results for May/June released

WAEC standards have dropped,

The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) on Monday released its May/June Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) results.This takes me back to
many years ago.Judging from the statistics of the results released,the standards of education keeps dropping,less than half of those who sat for the exams had 6 credits or above.But having said that,it does not say how many subjects were sat for.If it is 8,then it's not tto bad i guess.
Announcing the release on Monday, the Head of National Office, WAEC, Mr Charles M. Eguridu, disclosed that a total of 1,705,976 candidates registered for the examination, while, 1,692,435 (929,075 male, and 973, 360 female) eventually sat the examination.
Of the total number of candidates that sat for the examination, 791, 227 candidates (46.75%) obtained six credits or above; 982, 472 candidates (58.05%) obtained five credits or above.

Furthermore, 1,148,262 candidates (67.84%), obtained credits in four subjects, while 1,293,389 candidates (76.42%) obtained credits in three subjects.

Mr Eguridu also revealed that a total of 529,425 candidates, representing 31.28%, obtained credits in five subjects or above, including English Language and Mathematics.

However, a total of 145, 795 results have been withheld as a result of instances of examination malpractice.

Mr Eguridu also announced the extension of registration for November/December 2014 WASSCE. “The Council has decided to extend the normal registration period for the November/December 2014 WASSCE to Sunday, August 17, so as to enable candidates who sat the last May/June examination, and who may have any deficiencies, to register for the November/December diet, if they so wish,” he added.
