WAEC To Maintain Grading System Despite COVID-19
The West African Examinations Council is an examination board established by law to determine the examinations required in the public interest in the English-speaking West African countries, to conduct the examinations and to award certificates comparable to those of equivalent examining authorities internationally
The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) says it will maintain its grading system for the 2020 WASSCE for school candidates despite the long closure of schools and the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.
The Head of School Examination at WAEC, Mr. Godfred Addo in a Zoom interview monitored by NewsVibz said “even though we are not in normal times but the Council will maintain examination standard”
He encouraged that there is no need for candidates to panic, adding that all the questions are from the syllabus.
According to the WAEC grading system, A1 is Excellent, B2 Very Good, B3 Good, C4, C5, and C6 are interpreted as Credit, D7, and D8 are interpreted as Pass, while F9 is Fail.
The Council explains that A1 and B2 in the WASSCE means (Excellent), B3 is B (very good), C4 is C (Good), C5 and C6 are D (credit), D7 and E8 are E (Pass) and F9 is F (Fail).
