WASSCE – West African Senior Secondary Certificate                                        Examination

The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results for school candidates that sat the examination in 2019 were released to the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) on Saturday 31 August 2019, much later than in 2018, primarily because of the increased entries (almost 4 times as many as in 2018) and the breakdown of 3 scanners.
The increase in numbers is partly due to the fact that the return from 6-3-4-4 to 6-3-3-4 meant that there were two sets of students sitting the WASSCE together i.e. students promoted from SS3 to SS4 ,which no longer existed, and those from SS2 that were promoted to SS3. Notwithstanding efforts made by the MBSSE, the entries seen for some schools suggests that candidates additional to those that were actual students of the school were entered for the examination.
It is important to note that although 115,098 entered for the 2019 WASSCE, at the time of release of the results to the MBSSE, 34 schools were having their results with-held. 32 of these were private schools with incomplete payments to WAEC and 2 were government-assisted schools responsible for major disturbances during the conduct of the examinations.

BECE – Basic Education Certificate Examination

The Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results for the 2019 examinations, were received by the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education on Friday 18 October – 12 days earlier than in 2018. Analyses of the results have been carried out and I am pleased to announce as follows:
One hundred and ten thousand, seven hundred and seventy-two (110,772) candidates made up of 55,557 males and 55,215 females from 892 junior secondary schools entered for the 2019 BECE. A total of 110,406 candidates, consisting of 55,383 males and 55,023 females, sat sufficient numbers of subjects to be awarded aggregate scores ranging from 6 to 42 and to stand a chance of passing for the next level of schooling. This contrasts with the numbers for BECE 2018 when a total of 90,430 (45,260 males and 45,170 females) entered and 89,996 candidates, consisting of 45,063 males and 44,933 females from 826 schools sat sufficient numbers of subjects to be awarded aggregate scores ranging from 6 to 42.
187 candidates (100 males and 87 females) were absent for all subjects – Code 99. Whilst 179 candidates (74 males and 105 females) sat an insufficient number of subjects (Code 88) to be awarded an aggregate score.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving #Coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation on the Education Sector in Sierra Leone . While the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education still aims to maintain a ¨business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
