The dream of every candidate writing the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examination Council (NECO) is to pass the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) once and for all.
However, it is not possible to pass WAEC or NECO without doing some particular things. Thinking you would pass the exams without reading hard and not learning more is like pouring water into a basket and expecting it to get full.
You must understand that the SSCE is a major factor for gaining admission into your desired tertiary institution to study your course of choice.
How to pass WAEC and NECO SSCE with ease
You’ve got to convince yourself that you can make your papers in one seating. Don’t let anyone discourage you about your chances of success in the exams. So, anytime the exam comes, you would have the courage to write for success.
Familiarise yourself with past questions
Be familiar with the way WAEC/NECO set questions. By checking past questions and solving them consistently, that would help every candidate to pass the examination. You have numerous online and offline mediums to get the past questions on your own. Correct your mistakes as you carry on with that. Utilise the opportunities available.
Get recommended textbooks
Get recommended textbooks that have been selected by WAEC/NECO. Every candidate must have seen the required textbook needed by him/her for the exam. By getting them you would be able to have more access to what you would be taught and what would be asked in the exam.
Going to the more knowledgeable
Everyone has the ability to learn one thing or the other. No one is an island of knowledge. As a student, you have to go through different topics and study questions among which some would be difficult. Take such to those who have more knowledge to see you through. They may be your friends, teachers, people in your neighborhood or those on educational forums online.
Read beyond the classroom
Read more than what you were taught in the classroom. Every teacher won’t have the time to explain or teach everything that is in the syllabus. As a candidate, you must strive to cover contents of the whole syllabus because WAEC/NECO is not limited like the school exams you write.
You never can tell what questions the examiners are planning to set. You don’t even have an idea on the area or aspect that would be set as your question.
Ultimately, I advice you to study well and remove the fear of the unusually popular saying that “WAEC/NECO is hard”. If you don’t have the fear and prepare well, it’s easier for you to pass the exam.
