The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, has released its West African Senior School Certificate Examination, WASSCE, result for private candidates.

The WASSCE for private candidates was conducted between 27 October and 20 December, 2023.

WAEC’s Acting Head of Public Affairs Department, Moyosore Adesina, said a total of 78,419 candidates, representing 96.93 per cent “have their results fully processed and released, while 2,485 candidates, representing 3.07 per cent have a few of their subjects still being processed due to some errors traceable to them.”

In a statement signed by Adesina on Tuesday, WAEC said a total of 85,600 candidates registered for the examination but 80,904 sat for the examinations in 568 centres across the country.

The statement reads: “Efforts are being made to speedily complete the processing to enable all the affected candidates to get their results fully processed and released soon.

“The candidates in WASSCE for Private Candidates, though can register for eight or nine subjects, are not compelled to take all. They are free to sit, even one subject, depending on the deficiency they want to remedy.

“For them, therefore, the examination is only a remedial one – a remedy for an existing deficiency. From the above, it will not be true or fair to say that the performance in this examination has dwindled.”


Out of the figure that sat for the examination, WAEC noted that only a total of 35,830 candidates, representing 44.29 per cent obtained credit and above in a minimum of five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.

The examination body said out of the 35,830 candidates who secured credits in five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics, a total of 17,631, representing 49.21 per cent were male candidates, while 18,199, representing 50.79 per cent were female candidates.

Meanwhile, WAEC noted that the figure of candidates who secured credits in five subjects with or without English Language and, or Mathematics is 46,267, representing 57.19 per cent.
