  1. The new curriculum took effect from September 2011. However, the old SS curriculum is to be phased out systematically over a period of three years i.e. September 2011 to June 2014(update: It has now been phased out).
  2. All students are to offer all 5 core compulsory subjects.
  3. Students are to choose 3 or 4 subjects from their field of specialization i.e. Humanities, Science/Math, Business Studies or Technology.
  4. Students are to choose their compulsory entrepreneurship from the available list of 35 trades.
  5. Students may choose 1 elective subject outside their field of specialization provided that the total number of examinable subjects is NOT more than nine (9).
  6. In summary, students must offer: 5-core subjects, 3-4 subjects from field of specialization and 1 elective subject.

  3. Hi
    I love the info you share.
    However, for WAEC NEW CURRICULUM, I think you can improve by stating clearly the SUBJECTS THAT ARE ELECTIVES AND THOSE THAT ARE UNDER FIELDS OF SPECIALIZATION ON THE TABLE ABOVE.
    Thanks, keep up the good work!
