The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) which is popularly known as WAEC (West African Examination Council), is an important part of a Nigerian student’s academic life.
It is also arguably the hardest as it is the last external examination a secondary school student sits for before they start preparing for their tertiary education. Rated in A, B, C, D, E, and F grading levels, getting a distinction often reflects the unmatchable academic brilliance of a secondary school leaver.
