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).
WAEC grading system and Interpretation (by Percentage)

B2 Very good 70% – 74%
B3 Good 65%- 69%

C6 Credit 50% – 54%
D7 Pass 45% – 49%

  43. Thank you very much for this wonderful, educational and informative website. I hope you continue providing these pieces of quintessential information. I would love you to please me understand how WAEC grades. Assuming that I score 70 out of the 150 points on the Math section and my school sent to WAEC a grade of 80 for me, what would be my final grade as given by WAEC and what division will that score be?
