The West African Examinations Council has released the May/June 2015 Senior School Certificate Examination results, withholding 118,101 candidates’ results out of the 1.5 million students that sat the examination.
The Head of WAEC’s Nigerian Office, Mr Charles Eguridu who disclosed this at its Yaba Office said:”Out of 1,593,442 candidates who sat for the examinations, only 616,370 candidates, representing 38.68% obtained credits in five subjects and above including English Language and Mathematics.”
Justifying the slight improvement in the results from previous years, Eguridu said that in 2013, a total candidates who obtained five credits in English and Mathematics were 639,760 representing 38.30 per cent.
He said, in 2014, 529,425 representing 31.28 per cent obtained five credits in English and Mathemstics.
Meanwhile, Eguridu said that 6 states among the 19 states owing the Council have paid their debt, left with 13 states.
Eguridu added that the states owing WAEC had reduced to 13, saying the candidates in public schools in the 13 states would not have their results until their state governments pay their candidates’ registration fees.
The examination body had raised the alarm that 19 states owed the agency about N4bn, an amount that might cripple the operations of WAEC.
