CEM REPORT | The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced the release of the recently concluded 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination results.
WAEC’s Head of National Office, Patrick Areghan while making the disclosure on Monday, said, “The results are being uploaded on the results website. Candidates who sat the examination and who have fulfilled their financial obligations to the Council can access their results on the Council’s results website within the next twelve hours.
“Copies of the Result Listing will be sent to schools shortly. I need not restate the fact that the results of candidates who are sponsored by states indebted to the Council will not be released now until they pay up. We appeal to them to do so to enable the affected schools/candidates access their results.”
According to Areghan, a total of 1,607,985 candidates registered for the exam in Nigeria, and that the results were released 45 days after the last paper.
He said up to 76.36% obtained Credits and above in English Language and Mathematics while 88.04% made Credits and above in a minimum of five subjects among the candidates.
He added that some schools failed to upload their students’ Continuous Assessment Scores Capturing System at the stipulated time and many failed to meet registration deadlines, to the extent that some schools ended up not presenting their students for the examination.
“Yet, some who registered their students off-line failed to upload their entries! This showed unacceptable level of nonchalance. Again, others failed to meet deadlines due to criminal ‘shopping’ for candidates. By the time they realised it, the window had closed,” he said.
