How To Pass NOV DEC Exams 2020

Passing any exam has never been an easy task. In fact, most people are frightened at the thought of having to face an examination.
Taking the West African Examination Council (WAEC) exam for Senior High School is one of those exams that most students dread.

Indeed other exams organized by the Council into the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) are not easy. It comes with its own difficulty but the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is not easy.

For most students who fail in this exam, it is a major blow because it is one of the biggest impediments to progressing to pursue tertiary education.

Fortunately, those who fail in the exams at the end of their 3-year academic period in Senior High School (SHS) have an array of hope to correct the wrongs by taking the private WASSCE which most people call Nov/Dec.

It is Nov/Dec because, at the inception of it, it was usually written between November and December, however in recent times, the exams are written far before November.

In this article, I’ll like to share a few tips on how to pass the Nov/Dec exams. This is important because it is for persons who may still be dealing with the trauma of failing a major exam.

Before we jump into the detail let us talk about Who can write Nov/Dec exams.

The Nov/Dec exam is open to 3 classes of people:

  1. People who are in Senior High School but want to try their hands at writing the WASSCE exam
  2. People who have completed Senior High School but failed one or more subjects and want to correct it.
  3. Persons who have not attended Senior High School or dropped out of Senior High School but wish to further their education.

The first group of people, those still in Senior High School are sometimes challenged from partaking in the exams.

How to register for Nov/Dec

Registering for Nov/Dec is similar to registration for the main WASSCE exams but this time, with an authorized private agency or school.

The registration involves taking your biodata (name, date of birth, ID etc). You will be required to indicate the subjects you will be taking.

NB: The number of subjects you wish to write determines the cost. As a general rule, the more the subject, the lower the cost.

It will take a few weeks before your index number will be given.

How do you make sure you pass this time around?

It will require a little more thinking and commitment if you want to pass your Nov/Dec. Most people say it is more difficult to pass the Nov/Dec than the actual WASSCE but I disagree.

Here are a few pointers:

1. Psych yourself up: On the myth about Nov/Dec being difficult, compared to the May/June exams, it is only a saying to encourage people to study hard and pass once and for all. Taking the May/June and Nov/Dec exams, there is really no significant difference between them.

The important thing you should be doing is psyching yourself up. I think it is more of an emotional battle than the physical paper you are going to write. You will be dealing with the feeling of failure that you couldn’t make it the first time and the anxiety of taking an exam which in the worst case will mean another 1 year delay in your formal education journey. (Most Nov/Dec sitters are those who failed a subject or more in the May/June exams and are looking to better their grades to qualify them into tertiary institutions).
