The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) has released the result of the 2019 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The examination body disclosed this during a chat with newsmen in Lagos.

The council had urged candidates not indebted to the council to access and check their results online, using the result checker PIN on their smart identity cards used during the conduct of the examination.


Gentlemen of the media, it is with a heart full of gratitude to God that, I, on behalf of the Registrar to Council, the Management and Staff of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria, welcome you to this press briefing to announce the release of the results of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates, 2020.

The examination was simultaneously and successfully conducted throughout the five member countries — The Gambia, Ghana,
Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone using one and the same International Timetable.

You will recall that the examination, which was earlier scheduled to commence on 6th April, 2020 could not, as a result of the outbreak of the novel COVID-19 pandemic.

Everybody was scared stiff. Nobody wanted to take any action that could further put the life of the Nigerian Child in greater peril. However, after
much discussions with relevant authorities, the examination finally commenced on 17th August, 2020 and ended on 12th September, 2020, spanning a period of four weeks.

This was a deliberate attempt to manage the COVID-19 crisis. The Coordination of Examiners and Marking of Candidates’ Scripts took place at Eighty four (84) Marking Venues throughout the country. A total of Seventy Eight Thousand, Seven Hundred and Ninety-Nine (78,799) Examiners participated in the coordination and marking exercise.

The examination itself was a study in God’s divine intervention.
At a time the fear of the COVID-19 pandemic was hanging dangerously in the air like a high-tension wire, WAEC, with the collaboration of the various levels of government and other stakeholders, safely and successfully conducted the examination without any of the candidates contracting the virus in the examination hall or dropping dead.

We are equally happy to inform you that during the conduct of the examination, there was no reported case of any invigilator, supervisor, WAEC staff or any examination functionary for that matter, being infected with the virus as all the COVID-19 protocols were meticulously observed.

We, the Management and entire Staff of the Council in Nigeria, wish to express our profound gratitude to the Government of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria, for allowing the Council to conduct the examination, despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

We also thank the Honourable Minister of Education, Minister of State for Education and the various State Governments, for providing an enabling environment for the successful conduct of the examination.

We wish to extend our gratitude to all the Supervisors, Invigilators, Custodians, Examiners and other Ad-hoc personnel for their contributions towards the successful conduct of the examination and marking of scripts.

Our sincere appreciation equally goes to the officials of the Federal and State Ministries of Education and Health, Chairmen and Members of the Senate and House Committees on Basic & Secondary Education, Chairman
and Members of the Nigeria Administrative and Finance Committee of WAEC, all retired WAEC staff, for their prayers and support, other Friends of the Council, ANCOPPS, the Nigeria Police and other Security Agencies, for their assistance and cooperation during the conduct of the examination.

We are grateful to the schools that availed the Council of the use of their
facilities, despite other commitments. May I also use this opportunity to once again thank those who donated Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the Council, following our call for donations.

Gentlemen of the media, I am happy to announce that all the processes leading to the release of results have been completed. It is now my pleasure to announce the release of the results of candidates that sat the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for School Candidates, 2020 in Nigeria.

A total of One Million Five Hundred and Forty-Nine Thousand Seven Hundred and Forty (1,549,740) candidates registered for the examination from Nineteen Thousand One Hundred and Twenty-Nine (19,129) recognised secondary schools in Nigeria.

Of the number that registered for the examination, One Million Five Hundred and Thirty-Eight Thousand Four
Hundred and Forty-Five (1,538,445) candidates sat the examination.

The examination was also administered to candidates from some schools in Benin Republic, Cote d’Ivoire and Equatorial Guinea where the Nigeria curriculum for Senior Secondary School is being used. Remarkably, the examination was also conducted in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, the first time since the abduction of over 200 school girls in
the area by insurgents, six years ago.

I also wish to report that a total of Four Thousand Two Hundred and Eighty (4,280) candidates with varying degrees of Special Needs were registered for the examination. Out of this number, Two Hundred and Thirty (230) were visually challenged, Seven Hundred and Forty-Five (745) had impaired hearing; Two Thousand Eight Hundred and Fifty-Two (2,852) had low vision; Thirty-Eight (38) were spastic cum mentally challenged, and Fifty-Eight (58) were physically challenged.

All these candidates with special needs were adequately provided for in the administration of the examination. The results of these candidates
have been processed and released along with those of other candidates.

Of the total number of One Million Five Hundred and Thirty Eighty Thousand Four Hundred and Forty-Five (1,538,445) candidates that sat the examination, Seven Hundred and Eighty Thousand Six Hundred and Sixty (780,660) were males while Seven Hundred and Fifty-Seven Thousand Seven Hundred and Eighty-Five (757,785) were females, representing 50.74% and 49.26%, respectively.
