Marking Scheme And System Of Waec: Have you ever wondered how Waec 2018 Examination Sheets Would be marked and graded? If you have ever asked the question, how will waec mark and give scores for 2018 exam ? then you are at the right place.
I have already written on when waec will release results for 2018 . You may
click here to read when 2018 Waec results would be released or continue reading for how the waec papers are marked and graded.
Under the new WAEC grading system, the letters A to F are used to indicate how good a result it.
A1 = Excellent = 5% – 100% score
B2 = Very good =70% – 74% score
B3 = Good =65%- 69%
C4 =Credit =60% – 64%
C5 =Credit =55% – 59%
C6 =Credit =50% – 54%
D7 =Pass =45% – 49%
E8 =Pass =40% – 45%
F9 =Failure =0% – 44%
To get an A in Waec 2018 Mathematics, you need to score above 75% in the Exam. 75% means you are able to get 75 questions correctly out of 100 questions.
If you are given 50 questions in a subject, 75% is equal to around 37 questions you answered correctly. This explanation also applies to other grades above.
To know whether you will score An A, B or C, divide the number of questions/marks you think you would get correctly by the total number of questions/marks possible and multiply by 100%.
Example : I was able to answer 40 questions correctly out of 60 total questions given in Oral English. To calculate my percentage score, it is
(40÷60)×100% = 66.67% = B3
Assumption: All questions carry equal mark.
For Waec Theory Questions
Calculate how many marks you are very sure of, then divide my the total marks the questions carry and multiply by 100%.
Example : You are required to answer
5 questions in the theory part. Each question carries 20 marks.
Now, you are able to answer 4
questions and only sure of 15 marks out of total 20 marks f or each question .
The total marks you are sure of here is 15 times 4 = 60
Total number of marks you can get is 20 times 5 = 100
Your percentage score is (60÷100)×100% = 60% = C4
