The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released provisional results for the 2017 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

A statement signed by Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, Head of Public Affairs at WAEC, said the Council will soon despatch the results to the schools and candidates are advised to contact their heads of school for their results

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.

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.”

The council is alerting members of the public especially candidates to be ware of impostors who promise to change examination results for a fee.

Based on the provisional results, the performance at A1-C6 in Mathematics showed a marked improvement over that of 2016 (32.83% to 42.73%), while English Language recorded a slight improvement (53.19% to 54.06%). On the contrary, Integrated Science showed slight drop from the 2016 performance (48.48% to 43.66%).
