59.22% of 1,559,192 candidates who wrote the May/June 2017 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) made credits in five subjects, including English and Mathematics.
Announcing the results Monday at the WAEC headquarters in Lagos, the Head of National Office (HNO), Mr Olu Adenipekun, said the performance was a significant improvement compared to last year, which was 52.97 per cent and 2015, which was 38.68 per cent.
