About WAEC WASSCE Grading System & Marking Scheme
This is to help you know how the West African Examination Council (WAEC) Mathematics examination are marked and graded.
- Firstly, WAEC is the official examining body mandated by the regulatory authorities to conduct examination for senior high students across the West African Sub-region. Thus, WAEC grades students and certify them for higher academic pursuits.
- Secondly, The final grade WAEC gives to students is determined by the the students continuous assessment records in school, in addition to what you obtain in your final exams.
- Thirdly, every tertiary educational institution has its own admission requirement based their facilities, and statutory regulations. Thus, the law of every country imposes certain minimum admission requirement on tertiary institutions.

WASSCE Grading System
This is the current WAEC grading system and WASSCE Results Interpretation for WASSCE students.
WASSCE Marking Scheme
- For instance, in the WASSCE grades interpretation above, you will find that, to obtain A1, in WASSCE , you need to get marks of 71% to 100%, which is equivalent to 1 and interpreted as excellent.
- However, you must bear in mind that the WAEC grading system for WASSCE 2021 is not static. Rather, experience over the years has shown that, it sometimes changes according to the performance of WASSCE candidates that year.
WAEC Grading System
- As I indicated above, WASSCE grading system is very flexible. Thus, WAEC sometimes adjusts the grading structure to suit the performance of students of a specific year.
- This means that, WAEC may adjust the grading policy in a particular year in accordance with the results that candidates obtained in that year.
- Nevertheless, the official grading system remains the same for a relatively many years.
- Also, I must emphasize that the current WAEC grading system makes it clear that, any marks below 54 disqualifies you from gaining admission to a university in Ghana.
- This is because, the highest grade for admission into a Ghanaian university is grade C6.
- For example, WAEC can fix the marks for A1 in business management at 80-100, if too many students scored above 70 marks in that subject that year.
- Similarly, WAEC may give A1 to candidates who score 60-70 in Core Mathematics, if students general performance in that year poorly. This explains why I said WAEC grading system is flexible.
