WAEC Recommended Textbooks for Biology

The Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) conducted by WAEC is the examination that marks the end of secondary education. In other words, it is the final examination that secondary school students write usually towards the end of their SS 3.

The success rate of students taking part in this examination keeps declining with every passing year. There are many reasons responsible for this outcome.

But one of the reasons is that most of the candidates do not prepare well for the examinations. Many just depend on the lesson notes from their classes. Others read just any textbook they can lay their hands on. They fail to realize that it is not all textbooks that provide a complete coverage of the syllabuses of WAEC subjects.

The essence of this post is to enlighten you on WAEC recommended textbooks for Biology.

This is one of the several reasons why WAEC is a  standard external examination body. They provide their candidates with both syllabuses and recommended textbooks.

The syllabuses state the scope of the subjects and the learning objectives. The recommended textbooks are the ones that cover the syllabuses adequately using the best teaching approach.
