The results of the May/June 2012 West African School Certificate Examinations have been released
They were released today by the West African Examination Council, showing a marked improvement over the performance of the last two years by candidates.
However, it is still a sour story for students as less than 40 per cent, about 649, 156 candidates, obtained credits in five subjects, including both English and Mathematics.
The Head, National Office of the Council, Dr. Iyi Uwadie, said a Total of 1,672,224 candidates sat for the examination. He added that the results show a marked improvement in candidates performance compared with the results in 2010 and 2011 WASSCE.
Out of this, 1.5 million candidates representing 91.10% had their results fully released, while 150,874 candidates representing 8.90% had a few of their subjects still being processed due to some errors made by the candidates at the point of entry.
Further analysis showed that 771,731 candidates representing 46.14% obtained 6 credits and above, 952,156 candidates representing 56,93% obtained five credits and above while 1,107,747 representing 66.24% obtained credits in four subjects.
Candidates are expected to visit the council’s website for their results.
