The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, released the results of the 2020 November/December West African Senior School Certificate Examinations, WASSCE, for private candidates (second series).

The WAEC Head of Nigerian National Office, Patrick Areghan, announced the release of the results on Monday during a news conference in Lagos.

According to Mr Areghan, 12,040 out of the total 30,507 male candidates who sat for the exam (representing 49.60%) had the minimum credit pass in five mandatory subjects while 12,451 out of the total 31,002 female candidates (representing 50.40%) had similar results.

He added that the scenario indicated that more females did better than their male counterparts, just like the two previous editions of the examinations.

A total of 61,509 candidates sat for the examination at 540 designated centres nationwide, out of which 24,491 (representing 39.82%) obtained credits and above in at least five mandatory subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.

He said the results of 61,111 (representing 99.35%) of the total candidates who sat the exam had been fully processed and released while that of 5,548 candidates (representing 9.02%) are being withheld in connection with various reported cases of exam malpractices.

Mr Areghan added that their cases would be investigated to determine their fate if their results would be eventually released or cancelled.
