The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) has announced the release of the results of the November/December 2014 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for private candidates.
Speaking at a press briefing organised to officially announce the release on Thursday, head of the national office of WAEC, Mr Charles M. Eguridu, expressed his satisfaction at the average performance of candidates, which according to him, was a fair improvement on last year’s record.
According to Mr Eguridu, “out of the total number of candidates, 241,161 candidates, representing 97.69 per cent have their results fully released, while 5,691 candidates, representing 2.31 per cent have a few of their subjects still being processed due to some errors mainly traceable to the candidates and cyber cafes in the course of registration or writing the examination. Such errors are being corrected by the council to enable the affected candidates get their results.”
Mr Eguridu explained that the results of 28,817 candidates, representing 11.67 per cent, were being withheld in connection with various cases of examination malpractices.
“Such cases are being investigated and the reports of the investigations will be presented to the Nigeria Examination Committee (NEC) of the council for consideration. The committee’s decision will be communicated to the affected candidates in due course,” Mr Eguridu said.
Candidates who sat the November/December 2014 WASSCE (private) will be able to check the details of their performance from Saturday, December 20, via the council’s results website: www.waecdirect.org
