Many students do ask themselves, “what can i do after my SSCE?”. Read about these important things you should do while you are waiting for the release of your WAEC result.
The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is the first external exam for secondary students and once theyre done with it, they expected to wait for their results for some days.
Although, the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) promised to release WASSCE results within 45 days, the release of the result may take a little longer than that.
However, instead of staying idle waiting for your WAEC result, it is important you take some useful steps. Don’t just fold arms or stay indoors.
Below are three important things you should do while waiting for your WAEC result.
1. Attend coaching classes
Most students never thought of this, meanwhile some serious ones may have the thinking. It is very easy for secondary school graduates to derail after writing their final papers. You might want to rest after writing your SSCE for a whole month. Yes, it necessary you take a little break but don’t divorce your books.
After resting for few days, look for a good tutorial or coaching centre around your area and start preparing for the next exam.
2. Prepare for UTME
The main goal. You know what your next exam is, right? Once you pass your WASSCE and have the required credits for the course you want to study, the next step to take is to register for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination.
Jamb/Utme is also like your SSCE, you’ll really need to study well for this exam. Apart from attending tutorials, work on past questions. Also, form a study group and seek counselling on the course you want to study in the university or Polytechnic.
3. Learn a skill(vocational)
This may look somehow wired, but you need it. While you are preparing for the UTME, you can also learn a skill. I mean a skill that is related to your prospective course of study. For instance, if you wish to study Textiles in your University, you can go for Textile/Fashion skill acquisition centers.
And if you’re a science student and wants to study computer science, you’ll need to have a better understanding of the various components of the computer system. Learn about the branches of computer science such as Artificial intelligence, Communication and security, Computer architecture and Computer graphics.
Learning any of this will help you understand the course better at the university.
