1. Apply for Change of Course To A More Suitable One
If you have been following DrugSavant student update, you will know by now that, the O’ level requirement for all course are not the same.
So if the courses are not the same, how does this solve my D7, E8 or F9 in a required subject in WAEC?
Good question, you see, since the O’ level requirement for all courses are not same, by simply applying for JAMB Change of course, or changing the course you initially intended to study, to a course that would accommodate D7, E8 or F9 in the subject you have issues with, you will have no reason to sit for another WAEC.
Sticking with this option, of course, have its disadvantage; You may not get to study the course you have always longed for
But if the D7, E8 or F9 is in Mathematics or English, then this method would not yield any result, you will have to resort to option 2, 3 or 4.
2. Enroll for WAEC GCE
If you had D7, E8 or F9 On A Required Subject In WAEC, and that required subject happen to be Mathematics or English Language, then option 1 no longer becomes suitable, the next best thing to try is WAEC GCE.
The West Africa and Examination Board, WAEC, aside from WASSCE also conducts exam for Private candidates, and this is what we normally call WAEC GCE. GCE is an acronym for General certificate Exam.
If you participate in GCE and Ace your paper, the certificate is equivalent (the same) with other O’ level Exam.
You can read my guide on How To Prepare and Pass WAEC 2023 Exam.
3. Register for other WAEC alternative
The other sure alternative would be to register for other WAEC alternative, that is if the sales of form for these exams is still on, since WAEC is not the only acceptable O’ level result used for admission processing.
Your best bet would be to register for either NECO or NABTEB, with effective preparation you should outperform what you did in WAEC, Trust me when I say so.
4. Combine WAEC with other O’ level result
Students with D7, E8 or F9 On A Required Subject In WAEC but were lucky to have passed same subject in other O’ level Exam that they wrote before now, can easily combine both result for admission.
How does Combination of O’ level Result Works?
To be able to combine result for admission, you must have passed the subject you failed in one O’ level exam in the other.
Lets take a student who sat for both WAEC and NECO for example, if the student happen to fail mathematics in WAEC but passed same Mathematics in NECO, the student can easily use the maths he or she passed in NECO to augment for the failed maths in WAEC.
Luckily for you also, literally all courses in Nigeria accept combining of O’ level results.
With these four (4) options, I hope you would make the best decision.
