WAEC Syllabus guides against failureThere are a number of reasons why students fail the WAEC exam or pass with low grades upon checking their WAEC Result. One of such reasons is that they are not aware of every topic they should master prior to the WASSCE exam. It is disappointing to note that some textbooks or teachers do not cover all the topics on the WAEC syllabus. Some students don’t even have access to WASSCE syllabus in their respective schools. It is equivalent to soldiers preparing for a war without having an idea of the capabilities, tactics, or terrain of the enemy.
You must understand that you are not fully prepared for the exam if you are not conversant with the topics that WAEC instructs you to treat. Solving WAEC past questions is a good thing, at least, we all know that most of what WAEC does is to recycle or repeat old questions. However, they could bring an unpopular question to a future exam—don’t be caught unaware.
The WASSCE syllabus (for different subjects) provided on this page should be your friend. With it, you will be aware of topics to cover in your study.
