WAEC releases May/June 2013 examination
results on August 07, 2013 at 7:16 pm in News Lagos -The WAEC on Wednesday released the full
results of 1,543,683 candidates who sat for its May/
June 2013 Secondary School Certificate Examination. The number represents 91.38 per cent of 1,689,188
candidates who registered for the examination,. The Head of National Office (HNO) of WAEC, Dr Charles
Eguridu, announced the results on Wednesday when
he addressed a news conference in Lagos. Eguridu said 889,636 candidates obtained six credits
and above, while 1,074,065 others obtained five
credits and above. According to him, the results of 145,505 others,
representing 8.62 per cent, were being processed due
to some errors. “These errors are traceable to the candidates as
well as their schools in the course of registration or
writing the examination.’’ The HNO explained that such errors were being
corrected by the council to enable the affected
candidates to get their results fully processed and
released subsequently. Eguridu disclosed that the council cancelled the result
of 2,176 candidates. He explained that the cancellation was due to multiple
entries by the candidates discovered while processing
the results. “In line with the council’s regulation, the entire
results of such candidates who have been found guilty
of this act had been cancelled,

“ he said. The HNO also said 112,865 results of candidates,
representing 6.75 per cent, were withheld due to
examination malpractice.

Eguridu pointed out that the cases were being
investigated and that reports of the investigations
would be presented to the Nigeria Examinations
Committee (NEC) for consideration. Further breakdown revealed that 1,225,591
candidates obtained credits and above in four
subjects, 1,353,273 obtained credits and above in
three subjects, while 1,465,581 obtained credits and
above in two subjects. Eguridu said that of the 121 blind candidates, 117
attempted it while 24 obtained five credits in five
subjects including English Language. “Blind candidates do not take Mathematics and
Science Practical in WASSCE diets“, he said. He hailed security agencies for providing the much
needed security throughout the conduct of the
examination. The HNO said that despite the security challenge in the
country, especially in some parts of the North-East, the
council was able to conduct the examination. “We thank the Federal government and security
agencies particularly in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe
States for the support rendered the council during the
conduct of our examination. “We equally commend the Federal and State
Ministries of Education for their support in terms of
their facilities and logistics given to us during the
conduct of the examination.’’

He decried the murder of three of the council’s
personnel by gunmen while on their way from Yola to
Maiduguri. The candidates can check their results online on the
council’s website within 24 hours of the declaration
of the results. (NAN)
