Waec Grading System

Recently got a questions about the Waec Grading System. Here is what you need to know!

How ready are you for your forthcoming WAEC?

If you’re just 43.9% prepared for a particular subject say Mathematics.

You will fail.

To get accepted into most tertiary Institutions.

You are required to get at least a credit pass (50%) in your core subjects.

Here is the Waec Grading System…

Under the new 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.

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).
