                                                         SYNOPSIS OF WAEC RESULTS 2014 OF NIGERIA

 

September 4, 2014

 

My People:
The Tables below show a preliminary analysis of the WAEC 2014 results for Nigeria from data recently presented by that testing body.  The candidate population, pass rate differences and gender gap are presented on a state- and geo-political basis, for the education of the reader.
There is clearly a participation and pass rate gap crisis in the North-East (pass rate less than 10%), and a gender gap in number of candidates in the North-West (in favor of the males) and in the South-East (in favor of the females).  With a pass rate of above 50%, the South-East region is punching well above its weight, while Anambra’s pass rate of 66% is truly commendable, all things being equal.
And there you have it.
