Grading System For WASSCE 2021

Now, are there any changes to the WASSCE grading system 2020 for the 2021 WAEC Examination? Surely, you will find the answer right here.

As I indicated above, the WASSCE grading system is very flexible. Thus, WAEC sometimes adjusts the grading structure to suit the performance of students of a specific year.

This means that WAEC may adjust the grading policy in a particular year in accordance with the results that candidates obtained in that year.

Nevertheless, the official grading system remains the same for relatively many years.

Also, I must emphasize that the current WAEC grading system makes it clear that, any marks below 54 disqualify you from gaining admission to a university in Ghana.

This is because the highest grade for admission into a Ghanaian university is grade C6.

For example, WAEC can fix the marks for A1 in business management at 80-100, if too many students scored above 70 marks in that subject that year.

Similarly, WAEC may give A1 to candidates who score 60-70 in Core Mathematics, if students generally performance in that year poorly. This explains why I said the WAEC grading system is flexible.

Furthermore, let’s look at certain interesting facts about the WAEC grading system image above.
