WAEC celebrates 2020 best students in WASSCE

The West African Examinations Council has presented awards on Thursday to celebrate the best students in the 2020 WASSCE Exam.

Victory Yinka-Banjo student from Princeton University, No. 4252067/039, from a school in Aguda, Lagos, ranked first. Her subject grade is A1 (in all subjects), with a total score of 606.3196.

Adebowale Dorcas Ayoluwa of the Emerald Laurel Comprehensive College in Ibadan ranked second. She also got A1 in all subjects, with a total score of 601.2198.

In addition, Nwaozuzu Confidence Chinaza of the Total Education Development Academy in Eke-Owerri, Abia State ranked third. She also achieved excellent results (A1) in all subjects, with a total score of 599.605.

The mother of the first prize winner, Dr. Chika Yinka-Banjo, said in an interview with reporters that her daughter could not participate in the event because she is currently studying computational biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the United States. She said that the girl won 19 full scholarships abroad and had to choose one of them.

The second and third prize winners, Adebowale and Nwaozuzu, attributed their good results to hard work and thank their teachers, parents, and God for making them outstanding.

Hajia Binta Abdulkadir, chairman of the WAEC Nigeria National Committee, said in her speech that the 2020 winners are all women. She said this shows that “what men can do, women can do better.” She said the committee is exploring information and Computer technology has the opportunity to improve its services and make it impossible for unscrupulous people to forge their certificates.

Abdukadir said that despite the disruption caused by COVID-19 and the unsafe conditions in the country, the committee was able to conduct the exams, adding that the committee is doing everything possible to curb exam fraud.
