By Gabriel Dike, Lagos

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on Monday released the results of the May/June 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

There was a slight decrease in the performance of candidates compared to last year’s school exam.

However, sponsored candidates in 10 states would not get their results as their state governments are indebted to WAEC.

Announcing the release of the school exam results, Head of Nigeria National Office (HNO), Patrick Areghan, said 1, 601, 047 candidates sat for the exam and 76 per cent obtained five credits, including English and Mathematics.

The council however withheld the results of 365,564 candidates involved in exam malpractice, which is higher than the 10.9 per cent recorded in 2021 WASSCE.
