WAEC to announce release of SSCE results Monday; sit-at-home, e-marking contributed to delay

“We lost a whole week during the marking because every Monday is shut down. As I am talking to you this evening and on a Sunday, I am just leaving the office. But I can assure you that the result will be released tomorrow (Monday). The spokesperson must have reached out.”

WAEC, the West African Examinations Council, will on Monday announce the release of the long awaited results

WAEC, the West African Examinations Council, will on Monday announce the release of the long awaited results.

Patrick Areghan, Head of Nigeria’s office (HNO) of the regional examination body, in a Sunday telephone chat a Premium Times reporter, said a briefing to announce the release of the results would hold by 12 noon on Monday.

Mr Areghan cited various challenges including the stay-at-home-order in the South-east as part of the reasons for the seeming delay in the release of the results.

In his words: “We are all in Nigeria and we know what has been happening. We only finished the examination in October and the sit-at-home-order in the South-east didn’t help matters.

“We lost a whole week during the marking because every Monday is shut down. As I am talking to you this evening and on a Sunday, I am just leaving the office. But I can assure you that the result will be released tomorrow (Monday). The spokesperson must have reached out.”

Candidates who are awaiting the SSCE results, and who sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), have remained nervous over the release of the results in the past few weeks.

The situation is further aggravated by the decision of some of the institutions to combine admission of candidates for both 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 academic calendar.

Meanwhile, the introduction of the electronic marking system is reported to have contributed to the delay in the release of results.

“The e-marking hasn’t been easy for subjects such as Accounting. This may also be because this is a new system, so markers are yet to get accustomed to it. We still had about 41,000 of scripts for agriculture that had not been checked as of last week. And as of today, we had about 300 scripts for Accounting that were yet to be checked,” another source, who did not want to be quoted, said.

    It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  2. Hi, There’s no doubt that your blog could
    be having web browser compatibility problems. When I look at your website
    in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has
    some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other than that, fantastic website!
