Does WAEC set Questions outside the Syllabus?

The answer to this question is NO. WAEC has never in the past set questions outside the syllabus. The syllabus is just like areas of concentration to students. That is why I called it the perfect WAEC expo can you can ever ask for.

The truth, however, is that WAEC will likely set questions from ALL the topics covered in the syllabus.

Therefore, give priority to all the topics and sub-topics. Also pay attention to the objectives of each syllabus.

Past Questions are Also Important

Yes. The WAEC past questions or past question papers are as important as the WAEC syllabus. Studying without the past questions is akin to moving without direction.

It is the past questions that will give you an idea of how WAEC sets questions. More so, some questions are repeated.

So if you study with the syllabus and solve some past questions, believe me, you have already done half the job for yourself.

When is WAEC 2020 starting?

The Examination was scheduled to commence on the 6th of April, 2020 and end on the 5th of June 2020.

However, following the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 virus popularly known as Corona Virus, The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has postponed the examination indefinitely.

We will communicate you of the new examination date once it is announced.

Definition of Terms

Here, I want to define some of the terms (acronyms and abbreviations) used in this post which you need to know. You may know them already but not everybody does.

  1. WAEC: West African Examination Council. It is the body charged with organizing the WASSCE and GCE.
  2. WASSCE: West African Senior School Certificate Examination. This is the exam that marks your completion of the senior secondary school as organized by WAEC.
    Do not confuse the two. WAEC is the body that organizes the examination called WASSCE.
  3. GCE: General Certificate Examination. This is another O’Level examination organized by WAEC. It is an equivalent of WASSCE.
  4. PDF: Portable Document Format. It is one of the formats of storing files in the computer. To be able to view a PDF you will need a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat or WPS office. Other applications exist but these two are the most popular and I recommend them.


The above syllabi are the latest ones released  by WAEC. They are for both School Candidates (May/June) and Private Candidates (Jan/Feb & Nov/Dec GCE).
