WAEC Releases 2021 SSCE Results

The West African Examination Council(WAEC) has released the result for 2021 Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE).

The Head of the Nigeria National  Office, Patrick Areghan announced this in a statement on Monday.

Areghan said a total of 1, 573, 849 candidates registered for the WASSCE across 19, 425 approved secondary schools in the country while 1, 560, 261 actually sat for the exam.

According to him, 1, 274, 784 of the candidates got credit and above in at least five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics

He added that WAEC had already processed and released the results of 1, 256, 990 candidates, which represents 80.56% of those who sat for the exam in Nigeria.

“The examination ended on October 8, 2021, and today, Monday, November 22, 2021 – 45 days after the conduct of the last paper, we are releasing the result.

“This is a record time, taking into consideration the fact that we lost a week to insecurity, during the marking exercise in the South East, occasioned by the heightened tension before and during the Anambra Gubernatorial election.

“It is, therefore, not true, as you can see, that WAEC delayed the release of the results of the WASSCE (SC) 2021 as being speculated in some quarters. We have kept to our promise, in spite of all odds.

“We do not release results without marking the scripts and processing the scores. We are grateful to the examiners for doing a good job within the stipulated period.”
