### How is WAEC Percentage Calculated?

The waec percentage scored in a subject is calculated using the raw marks obtained in the subject divided by the total number of marks allocated and multiplied by 100.

Assuming a candidate was able to socred say 70 marks out of 100 total marks in elective mathematics paper 2 (theory), the same candidate also scored 34 out of 40 objective questions.

What the examiners will do is take the Marks to obtain (70) and divide them by the total allocated marks (100). This is done to ascertain your score in theory.

After ascertaining your score in theory, then that score will be added to the marks obtained in objectives in other to get the final score in all.

Example

Marks Obtain in Theory = 70
Total Marks allocated for theory questions = 100
Total Marks Allocated for objectives = 40
Marks Obtain in Objective = 34

Total Marks obtain By Candidate = 70 + 34
Total Allocated Marks (Both Objective & Theory) = 100 + 40

=> 104/140 X 100 = 74.3%

Going with the grading system, this candidate has obtained A1 in Elective maths.

A1 Excellent 75% – 100%
B2 Very good 70% – 74%
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% – 39%
