This is a simple summary from WAEC’s own reports.
In the past 6 years, the average secondary to tertiary transition has been 35%, with government projecting 40% this year, which obviously wont be met due to the decline in performance in Social Studies and Integrated Science. Infact, even the 35% cannot be maintained.
