In part 10, I pointed out that the recommended number of subjects wto register in Waec and Neco is 9. The minimum number of subjects a waec candidate can register for is eight (8) while the maximum is nine (9)
Not all the Nine subjects are important to you. After all, you only need credits in five relevant subjects (including maths and English) to gain admission into any University or polytechnic of your choice.
For one reason or the other, you may not want to sit for all 9 subjects in waec. The reasons include:
- You passed all the other subjects but need only maths or English in waec or Neco to complete your admission requirments.
- You just need one or two subject to complete your paper so that you can gain admission to study your course.
- You don’t need the 9 subjects, so you don’t want to waste time reading them.
- You are sick and don’t want to sit for the remaining papers, after all, you don’t need them.
- You just want to sit for the few papers that were held by waec.
Now, you may be wondering, if I don’t write all the subjects I registered, will my result be released or held? Of course, the subjects you sat for will be released. You would also get results for the ones you didn’t not sit for (You already know what the grades will be, lol).
The fact that you skipped one or two subjects during waec or Neco doesn’t mean that they will seize your result. You will still get your results fully released.
However, it is highly not advisable for you to deliberately skip a paper in waec and Neco. Even if you need just two subjects in waec, ensure to sit for the complete nine. This time, you can make all the papers and then use one sitting instead of two sittings you were aiming for.
