  1. The standard of education in Nigeria keeps dropping by the day, especially in government school. And the most unfortunate fact is that the Govt. seems helpless because the system is corrupt. Those paid to fight mal-practise are now the brain behind the same monster that they are to fight and kill.

  2. E bi lik say WACE don put eyes 4 miracle centres now!! Na whre d mass failure go from. Hw can 1 centre of ova 130 students 2 write d same tin? Bros tink am nah!!

  3. The Government shld do something about this, because the private schools are doing better than the public schools, if the mass failure is too much then they have to do something about the Jamb seated students.

  4. The simple truth is that the issue of ‘O’ level examination will now be business between West Africa and the National Examination Council; because both need more candidates to re-register. So why won’t there be a mass failure of candidates? The truth and only the truth must be said. Think about it.

  5. Secondary school students especially in govt & unchecked private schools should take their studies serious. Learn how to write exam on their own b/cos mass cheating leads to mass failure. What do we do to those officials that abate examination malpractice? We must tackle them otherwise O’level’ll continue to loose its standard in Nigeria. CORRUPTION!!!

  6. Dat man wey dey say mass faliure dey bcos of exam malpractice how (him) take enter dat position wey e dey? No be working malpractice? Y dem dey chop students money like dis? Some don write (WAEC FOR 3 TO 4 YEARS). NA DEM NO WETIN DEM DEY DO WITH OUR RESULT. BUT NA GOD GO JUDGE DEM.

  7. It’s certain i’m among those dat pass perfectly by the grace of God.I shall not b put 2 shame as the senior boy of my school.

  8. Let us not raise d issue of mass failure now till we confirm dat d result is out. Let students advance 2 d habit of reading, with d fear of God, determination, diligence,and discipline we will make it all.

  9. The standard of Education in Nigeria is no longer falling, it is now sumalsuting. May God help us

  10. Allah plis mad me a successful one among those who sat 4 dis years waec Amin (bcos its U i trust and U i call 4 help).

  11. Waec failure is now common so what A gud human shuld do is depend and call his/her God an issue like dis 4 help, before and after writting waec.

  12. I never believed my aunt when she introduce me to Mr adewale James,he help me with my outstanding result and now all my result are released i am so happy. Next university section is my section, thank God and God bless him. Please thank him for me his contact

  13. This issue of mass failure is one that should not be taken lightly. It is obvious that this problem is overwhelming because it is widespread over many West African countries. As with any problem if we don’t address it from the root, it will fester and continue to spread. As a people we need to move past blaming the testing system. We need to address the problem from the student’s point of view. The bottom line is the children are not grasping the concepts because of the way it is taught in schools. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brVn64F9eUc
