North East: 97% of students who wrote WASCCE in 2020 failed – Minister

One Hundred and Seventeen (117), out of about Five-Thousand (5000) students who sat for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) passed.

The rest of the students failed, the North East Regional Minister, Zakaria Yidana, has disclosed. This, according to him, means that only 3% of the students passed while 97% failed, a development he observed as worrying.  

“We had about 5000 students and when the results came, only 117 students passed the WASSCCE exams, that represents 3% out of 5000 students. You ask yourself, what happened to the over 4,800 students. 97% failed. We cannot do that in this region and think that we have a future”, he said.

Mr Yidana revealed this development at a handing-over ceremony of a 12-unit classroom block and a 400- bed capacity girl’s dormitory for the Walewale Vocational and Technical Institute to reduce overcrowding in the school.
