The announcement of the release of WAEC results is always big news to any aspiring student in Nigeria.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC), has declared the release of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results for 2022.
Prospective candidates can now check their 2023 WAEC results which are available on the WAEC portal for checking results.
The result can be checked in different ways, provided that candidates have access to the internet.
It can be checked in a number of ways with any comfortable device. Results can be checked on your mobile phone if you have one or you can go to the café to check it also.
It was recorded by the examination body that a total of 1,601, 047 candidates, sat for the examination.
Out of the 1,601, 047 candidates, a total of 1,222,505 candidates of the 1,601, 047 candidates passed with 5 credits and above, in a minimum of 5 subjects.
As part of the compulsory subjects to pass, English language and Mathematics were also included.
That figure meant that about 73 percent passed the examination, which meant there was a decrease of more than 5 percent from the previous year.
When you compare it to the 81 percent pass rate recorded in the same exam last year. There is a need for major improvements from candidates in subsequent years.
