For instance, to get an A in WAEC or NECO 2020 Mathematics, you need to score above 75% in the Exam. 75% means you are able to get 75 questions correctly out of 100 questions or when the score is converted, the score when converted must be equal to 75% to score an A.
If you are given 50 questions in a subject, 75% is equal to around 37 questions you answered correctly. This explanation also applies to other grades above.
HOW IS WAEC and NECO PERCENTAGE % GRADE CALCULATED?
To know whether you will score An A, B or C, divide the number of questions/marks you think you would get correctly by the total number of questions/marks possible and multiply by 100 percent.
Example: If you were able to answer 40 questions correctly out of 60 total questions given in Oral English. To calculate your percentage, it will be (40/60)x100% = 66.67% = B3.
In an objective, all questions carry equal marks.
For WAEC or NECO Theory Questions
Calculate how many marks you are very sure of, then divide by the total marks the questions carry and multiply by 100%.
Example: You are required to answer 5 questions in the theory section. Each question carries 20 marks.
Let’s say you are able to answer 4 questions and sure of 15 marks out of a total of 20 marks for each question.
The total marks you are sure of is 15×4 = 60
Total number of marks you can get is 20×5 = 100
Your percentage score is (60/100)x100% = 60% = C4
