Number of Subjects/Papers you Can Register in WAEC
The officially accepted minimum number of subjects a student can register in WAEC is 8 while the maximum is 9.
However, English Language and Mathematics have been automatically selected for you because they are compulsory. You are required to select the other subjects or papers you wish to register for in this examination.
NOTE: In WAEC GCE (private candidates), you can sit for a minimum of seven (7) and a maximum of Nine (9) subjects/papers are allowed (English Language and Mathematics inclusive).
But I Saw a Certificate with Just 5 Subjects/Papers on it.
This is because the candidate’s passed only five subjects.
In other words, WAEC will not display subjects with F9 on the certificate issued. If you pass 3, only that will be on your certificate or original result.
But I only need five Subjects/Papers to Gain Admission.
That’s true too.
Yet, you have to register at least 8.
You can be absent from those you don’t want/need. Then, they will record “Absent” (ABS) for you there.
