Junior WAEC 2024

Junior WAEC is also referred to as BECE. BECE is the acronym for Basic Education Certificate Examination. It is an examination organised by the various State Ministries of Education in all the 36 states of the Federation and the FCT. Of course, it is mostly students in government-run secondary schools that sit for this examination.

There is also the BECE that the National Examination Council (NECO) conducts. Students from private schools, mission schools and unity schools sit for this one.

The goal is the same. That is, to certify that the JSS 3 students have completed their basic education. After BECE, students are free to enroll in a senior secondary school or proceed to learn a trade or do business.

Reasons Why Candidates Perform Poorly in Junior WAEC

Our main goal on this platform is to arm candidates preparing for external examinations with information. We relentlessly pursue this goal because we believe that the right information plus hard work would always guarantee success.

Many candidates sitting for BECE perform below expectation because they do not have access to the right preparatory materials.

Although some of them work hard, they still do not ace their papers because they read amiss. They don’t know that there are recommended novels and textbooks for BECE.

The BECE examiners expect that candidates will prepare with these novels and textbooks. So they set their questions from these materials believing that the candidates are aware of them and are actually making use of them.

Many candidates perform well in their Junior WAEC not necessarily because they are smarter than others but; but because they got the right information. Fortunately, you are here to get the right information.
