In a related story, the Minister for Education, Mr Audutwum following the unsatisfactory performance of candidates who sat for 2021 WASSCE in some subjects has vowed to improve the pass rate of 2022 WASSCE mathematics.
“Actually the average is 60% certain subjects rate went up, others dipped but if you put in average is still 60%. So if you look at English and Maths, for example, there was a dip but Integrated Science saw a huge jump,” he stated.
I want to assure you that Mathematics should not see a dip in my time as somebody who is Mathematician, we are going to look at what went wrong and see what we can do,” Dr Osei Yaw Adutwum said at a press briefing.
The Bosomtwe Member of Parliament indicated he believes increasing the pass rate of English Language and Mathematics this academic year will guarantee a higher rate of entry into various public universities in the country.
