In an interview with the head, Nigeria National Office of the WAEC, Mr Charles Eguridu, on Friday in Lagos.
He stated the statistics of the 2012 GCE results, withheld results represent 11.04 per cent of the total 396,614 candidates who sat for the examination.
Eguridu explained that the results were withheld because of various examination malpractices.
He disclosed that out of the 396,614 candidates who sat for the examination, 98 per cent had their results fully processed, while 7,158 candidates had a few of their subjects being processed, as various errors and omissions detected by the council were sorted out.
Eguridu said of the total number of candidates that sat for the examination, 161,706 candidates, representing 40.77 per cent, obtained six credits and above; 150,615 candidates, representing 37.97 per cent, obtained credits in five subjects and above; 268,688 candidates, representing 67.74 per cent, obtained credit and above in four subjects; 309,706 candidates representing 78.10 per cent, obtained credits and above in three subjects; while 343,352 candidates (86.57 per cent) obtained credit and above in two subjects.
However, “a total of 150,615 candidates, representing 37.97 per cent, obtained credits in five subjects and above, including English Language and Mathematics,” Eguridu said.
He stated that out of the total number of 49 blind candidates registered for the examination, 23, representing 46.93 per cent, obtained credits in five subjects including English language, adding that blind candidates did not sit for Mathematics and science practical in WASSCE diets.
He added that the Nigeria Examination Committee of the council, during its 54th meeting held in November, appealed to the federal and state governments to address the dearth of qualified teachers, inadequate and dilapidated classrooms, lack of teaching aids and other facilities in many secondary schools in the country, as these issues contributed to the poor examination results often recorded in the country.
