The West African Examinations Council has released the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination for private candidates.
Announcing the release of the results on Monday, the council said 39.82 per cent made credits in five subjects, including Mathematics and English.
The Head of the National Office, Patrick Areghan, also announced the opening of registration for the 2021 WASSCE for school candidates.
According to Areghan, the newly-released result is an improvement in performance in the examination in the last two years.
He also disclosed that of the 61,509 candidates who took the examination, 5,548 (i.e. 9.02 per cent) have their results being withheld because of alleged involvement in examination malpractice.
