This year's West African Examinations Council results failed to produce a candidate for the division one, according to the head of WAEC, Mr. John Gayflor.
WAEC, for the first time Last Friday, released the results for both Liberia Junior and Senior high school. But Gayflor lamented that no student obtained Division One while one hundred students obtained division two.
The WAEC official noted that this year's results produced more Division Two students than last year.
"This year's WAEC results produced more division two students than that of the same examination in 2012 where there were eighty-two Division Two students," explained Gayflor.
The WAEC official said of the hundred students, there were 55 males and 45 females. He added that the total number of students obtaining Division Three are eighteen- thousand four hundred twenty-three.
Gayflor averred that the results shows St. Theresa Convent has the highest number of students who obtained Division Two followed by LAC-ST. Joseph School in Grand Bassa.
Gayflor said, at the senior high level, out of the twenty-six thousand seven hundred and thirty-six students who sat the exam, eighteen thousand five hundred and twenty-three made a successful pass.
"Of this number, ten thousand, three hundred and ninety-one of the successful candidates were male while eight thousand one hundred and thirty two were females," Gayflor said.
According to Gayflor, for the junior high school, thirty thousand two hundred and fifty-three sat the exam while twenty four thousand students made a successful pass.
"The candidates comprising sixteen thousand, five hundred and fifty eight males and thirteen thousand six hundred and ninety five female who sat the examination," Gayflor said.
The WAEC executive said for the junior high level two hearing impaired [deaf] and four visually impaired [blind] students sat the exam.
Gayflor said, at the senior high level seven visually impaired students sat the test adding that six of them are males and one female.
He said, the overall results coming from the junior high school examination is "fairly" good.
"I seize this opportunity to congratulate the nine hundred and fifty seven schools who presented candidates for the 2013 may-June Liberia Junior High School Certificate Examination," Gayflor said.
"I hope this result will be used for the placement of students in the 10th grade," he said. Gayflor said, the best performing candidate for the May-June 2013 senior high level is Booker D. Harvey Jr. of the SOS Hermann-Gmeiner International School.
"He obtained six credits English (2), Economics (3), physics (3), Chemistry (5), Mathematics (6) and Geography (6) with an aggregate of 25," Gayflor said.
The head of WAEC said during the conduct of the examination four hundred and twenty-nine  students were involved in examination malpractice.
"The entire results for these candidates are being withheld and would be referred to the appropriate committee of the council for action, Gayflor disclosed.
The WAEC Boss urged all school authorities in Montserrado to pick up their student's results by Tuesday.
Gayflor said the results for schools outside of Montserrado will be sent through the Ministry of Education to their respective counties.
He said the two deaths at WAEC Monrovia office, the former Head of National Office Thomas Gaie and a staff of the Test Development Division Allen Bondoe ahead of WAEC exam posed a huge challenge for them [WAEC staff].
Results 'worrisome', mother says
A mother of four Fatu Massaquoi 48, said, this year WAEC results without any student reaching division one is "worrisome."
"Look with the way I see our educational system going, if nothing is done in the next five years, we will not produce a Division Two student," Massaquoi said.
The mother blamed teachers and school administrators for the poor performance of students.
Massaquoi said, students fail in one school and enrolled to another school to take a higher class adding that school administrators do not check student's documents properly when seeking admission.
"All they [school administrators] care about is how pack their classes should be and not the output of our children. This time when you ask students who are seeking admission at the University of Liberia what they are studying, most of them tell me that they are studying Geology, Mining Engineering and so on. I wonder how these children who cannot pass high school physics and Mathematics are managing," she asked.
