The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has released provisional results of candidates who sat for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates in 2020 in Ghana.
A statement dated Friday, November 13, 2020, signed and issued by the Head of Public Affairs at WAEC, Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe said the release of the results follows the completion of all post-examination processes.
The provisional results indicate that there were improvements in the performance of candidates at Grades A1 to C6 in English Language and Mathematics (Core) in 2020 as compared to 2019
- English Language – 48.96% in 2019 to 57.34% in 2020
- Mathematics (Core) – 65.31% in 2019 to 65.71% in 2020
On the other hand, Integrated Science and Social Studies recorded a decline in the performance of candidates at Grades A1 to C6 in 2020 as compared to 2019 as follows:
- Integrated Science – 63.17% in 2019 to 52.3% in 2020
- Social Studies – 75.43% in 2019 to 64.31% in 2020
WAEC explained in the press statement that the results of the candidates will be dispatched to their schools and candidates have therefore been advised to contact their heads of school for their results.
Meanwhile, WAEC has hosted the results online and candidates who so desire, may access their results at the Council’s website – www.waecgh.org.
“The Council hereby cautions all stakeholders, especially candidates, to be ware of fake results websites and the activities of fraudsters who promise to upgrade results for a fee.”
”Candidates are to note that all WAEC results are secured and can be authenticated. Institutions are therefore urged to always verify results presented to them to expose incidents of forgery,” it added.
