This years W.A.S.S.C.E results has genenerated so much hullabaloo about the percentage of failure. Whilst some claim over 70% failed, others too are saying if you get 7 A’s and one ‘D’in mathematics, then you have not failed. Unfortunately, all the public and private universities are not admitting students with even one ‘D’ in any of the core subjects.
The prerequisite for admission in the universities presently demands for the candidates to pass all the four core subjects before even the electives are considered. You have to get at least C6 in six subjects. However, it is imperative you at least get C6 in your four core subjects and C6 in three electives before you are considered for selection in the private university.
So What Option do You have if One D7 is Spoiling your result.
The W.A.S.S.C.E is the major examination that would determine most often the kind of life you want to live in future. You have to get it right, move to the University and take it up from there, One ‘D’ in your result presently would not do you much good. Even the Polytechnics refused some candidates with D’s in either mathematics or Integrated Science last year. So your best bet is to write the WASSCE again next year so that you can still make it to the university next year. Where you would write it would be our headache, just make up your mind on time so you don’t miss the registration.
Your second option is to register for Nov/Dec examination. This can permit you to better the grades of subjects you did not perform well in. It would however mean you can only go to the university in 2016. It is however one of the best choice you have to make if you don’t want to write all the eight subjects.
Apply for Nursing or Teachers Training College
The nursing and teachers training school is another institution that gives candidates a secured job opportunities after completion. However, admission into both institutions demands candidates pass all the core subjects before chance is given for applicants to attend interview. If you however have all the requisite passes, give me a call and let me see how best I can assist you make the training college or the nursing training school of your choice.
Register for a professional I.C.T Course
There are numerous IT courses WASSCE graduates can partake in. Learning Microsoft Office and Mavis Beacon Typing is good but I will not recommended you spend a whole year learning how to type. However, you can do the following certification;
Microsoft Office Certication
Computer Networking and Communications
Google Products Training and Certifications
Apple Training and Certifications
Do a Diploma Course
Some of the Private Universities can admit students with D and E for their Diploma courses. You just have to find out how many years you have to top up to obtain a degree at the same university.
On the whole, I think it will be the best option if you write the WASSCE again and register for Nov/Dec next year to be very sure of your results. I believe that would be one of the best choice you will make. Getting the Degree should be the ultimate goal. If you get your result right, you can obtain your University degree in Four years.
If you should decide again, give me a call and let me help you get a good school where you can write again.
