More Females Pass 2021 WAEC Examination Than Males, As Results Are Released

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released the results of the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination for School Candidates.
The exam had taken place simultaneously throughout the five-member countries of the council – The Gambia, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.
The final result showed that 1,560,261 SS3 candidates sat for the examination while 1,274,784 achieved the minimum benchmark needed for admission into the university.
Out of the number, 630,138 (49.43 per cent) were male, while 644,646 (50.57 percent) were female.
Head of the Nigeria national office, Patrick Areghan said at the council headquarters in Yaba, Lagos today, November 22, debunked the notion that WAEC delayed the result.
“It is 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 should be praised rather than being vilified. Nothing can be faster or earlier than what we have done.
“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.
“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.”
The release of the results is coming 45 days after the exanimation was concluded on October 8, 2021.
