How to Prepare And Pass WAEC In One Sitting 2021

To pass WAEC or GCE with straight A’s isn’t as difficult as some students see it to be. I wrote GCE when I was in SS2 and majority of my friends and school mates back then did the same. I had six credits including Mathematics (A1), English (c6), further-mathematics (B2), etc. And I have prepared students for WAEC and GCE with the majority of them having nine credits with As and Bs in all the subjects they wrote without stress.

I used the same method I applied when I wrote the exams sixteen years ago to teach my students. I know the reason why you are here is to know the tips on how to ace WAEC in one sitting. And I will explain the method I used for my most recent student who sat for GCE in SS2 and had As.

I have noticed that there are strategies that straight A-students do use to ace any exam. And if you want to enlist yourself in such ranks, you must study and follow their approach.

6 Steps To Pass WAEC Without Stress

There are courses you can’t study if you don’t have credits in WAEC at one sitting: courses like Medicine and Surgery. The reason is that the number of students that applied for those courses is high. Therefore, one of the ways to reduce the number of applicants is to make WAEC or GCE requirements as one sitting.

  1. Don’t panic

The fear of WAEC is one of the reasons why students fail the exam. You have to remain confident in yourself and ability to pass the exam. One of the things to do to boost your confidence level is when you start preparing for the exam early.

Early preparation helps you cover more relevant topics than late preparation. Late preparation can increase your stress level and eventually lead to poor performance.

2. Source for past questions on various subjects you want to write

This will give you a hint of how WAEC questions are structured. This method helped me in chemistry back then. I understood how the practical, theory, and objective chemistry questions looked like.

And I was able to detect areas where WAEC like to focus much on through the trend of their past questions I have studied. Therefore, this made me focus on the most important areas and made my reading productive.

3. Go through recommended textbooks

Go for recommended textbooks that explain better and can hasten your understanding. A textbook helped me for the practical aspect of chemistry back then.

I read the practical book and I was able to do very well in chemistry. Moreover, textbooks are needed for you to understand some questions you might be having difficulty to answer. Once you are able to understand it, it has become part of you.

4. Ask your teachers about how WAEC allot marks

I remembered that when I wrote my GCE back then my teachers told me how WAEC allot marks. For example, practical physics, chemistry, and biology take 40% of the total mark while the theory and objectives take the remaining 60%. Knowing this will help your preparation.

Moreover, some of your teachers are WAEC examiners; they are familiar with the dos and don’ts of WAEC. So take their words with seriousness and take note of any area they ask you to note. They are instruments that can guide you to success.

5. You must read instructions before you answer any question

For example, in mathematics there are questions that belong to other countries, so don’t attempt questions that are not meant for you.

6. Work hard

Success is for those who study hard and give their best. There is no shortcut to success than to work hard and be studious.

I will like to answer some students who wants to know how to pass waec mathematics. Mathematics in waec is divided into objective (50 questions) and theory (this is divided into section A and section B).

Your success in waec mathematics begin if you can make sure to score minimum of 35 out of the 50 questions in the objective. You also need to make sure that you answer correctly 3 questions out of the 5 compulsory questions in section A of the theory. The same is also applicable for section B.

There are certain topics you need to master in waec mathematics syllabus: Algebra, simultaneous equation, probability, statistics, inequality, set, circle geometry, word problem, indices, etc.

Facts About WAEC Expo 2021

Are you looking for “WAEC expo”? Read this short article to give you more insight into why expo destroys life than a cigarette.

The number of fraudulent people is increasing on a daily basis because of the crave of students to get expo to WAEC  questions. And because there is high demand for an “expo,” people now venture into the business to make gain from students who are looking for a shortcut to pass an exam.

WAEC expo

I know that some people still find their way to see WAEC expo because of the sabotage working with WAEC. However, many people claiming to help you get WAEC life questions are deceiving you. They are only after your money.

Education is not a car race, or a do or die affair. From experience, you can pass WAEC by devoting your time to read your books and study past questions. Success in exam isn’t as hard as people make it look.

Looking for an “expo” is a distraction to lieu you away from adequate preparation for the exams.

WAEC Upgrade

The Internet has been bombarded with a lot of Fraudsters parading themselves as the admission officers in one tertiary institution or the other. And by this means, they have defrauded a lot of unsuspecting candidates of their parents’ hard-earned money. Don’t be a victim!

Anyone who is promising to upgrade your WAEC result or its equivalent is only deceiving you because there is nothing like that. They are on a mission to collect your money. There is nothing like WAEC upgrade, NECO upgrade, etc.
