The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released provisional results of candidates who sat for the 2021 West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
This follows the completion of all post-examination processes.
A total of 446,352 candidates, made up of 221,439 (49.6 %) males and 224,913
(50.4 %) females from 965 schools entered for the examination.
The figure is 18.8% higher than the 2020 figure of 375,763.
A total of 3,545 (0.79 %) of the candidates who registered were absent from the examination.
WAEC has explained the entire results of 3,667 candidates have been withheld pending the conclusion of investigations into various cases of examination malpractice detected during and after the conduct of the examination.
The scripts of candidates from 194 schools in certain subjects have also been withheld
and are being scrutinised.
Candidates have therefore been advised to contact their Heads of school for their results.
The Council has also hosted the results online and candidates who so desire,
may access their results at the Council’s website or dial the shortcode *944#.
