WASSCE leakages

Reports of widespread leakages in the examinations compelled WAEC to tighten its security measures. At least three papers according to WAEC, were “compromised”, but the council did not cancel any of the papers when the issue emanated.

The statement also noted that, “the general performance for the 2016 is significant improvement over that of 2015.”

WAEC said though it is in the process of dispatching the results to the various candidates “those who desire, may access their results at the Council’s website.”

According to WAEC, a total of 125,065 students obtained A1 to C6 in English Language, which is 53.19%, 59,725 (25.40%) obtained D7-E8 whilst 46,595 (19.82%) had F9. For Mathematics, 77,108 (32.83%) obtained A1-C6; 65,007 (27.68%) obtained D7-E8 whilst 89,477 (38.10%) had F9.
