WASSCE / WAEC Core / General Mathematics Past Questions

 Welcome to the our WASSCE / WAEC Core / General  Mathematics  past questions page on the web. 

Larnedu has the largest WASSCE past questions collection on the web and this is not an exaggeration.

We’re not perfect but have been working hard towards improving every day and achieving our mission, which includes helping every student that accesses our learning resources and is ready to work hard to excel academically.

All the WAEC Core Mathematics  past questions on this page have been 100% free since day one and would likely remain in the foreseeable future.


We actually spend our financial resources to have some of our WASSCE past questions  sent to us so please:

  • DO NOT download any of our WASSCE General Mathematics  past papers to post on other forums or websites without giving us credit
  • DO NOT sell any WAEC General Mathematics past paper you downloaded from Larnedu
  • DO NOT  post any WASSCE General Mathematics past question paper you downloaded from Larnedu on websites that ask for membership payment or request users to complete tasks (surveys, etc) before they download the paper

Remember, we started this page to help students who don’t have the budget for hardcopy WASSCE General Mathematics past question papers or who want easy access to the past question papers on their mobile devices or computers.

Go directly to the WASSCE / WAEC Mathematics past question section on this page (skip the introductory text). We also recommend other resources such as the following:


The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is a type of standardized test taken in  West Africa, mostly by students who wish to proceed to the higher institution. It is administered by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

It is only offered to candidates residing in Anglophone West African countries namely: Ghana, Gambia, Nigeria, Liberia and Sierra Leone and is written 2 times a year ( May/June and Nov/Dec).

The WASSCE tests candidates according to the topics on the WAEC syllabus.

The contents in each WASSCE General Mathematics question paper (for a specific year) is usually similar from one country to another. Questions on the WASSCE General Mathematics theory section may be specified to be answered  by candidates from a particular country and this happens mostly in the theory section.

A WASSCE question paper on a particular subject may be entirely cancelled and changed in a region when the West African Examination Council (WAEC) heading  that region suspects a leakage of examination papers before the start of the exam.

Benefits of regular WAEC past questions practice

Speed: Regular practice of our WASSCE Core Mathematics past questions makes you faster on the exam day. It’s no secret that questions on the WASSCE for each particular subject are usually similar to questions in previous years since they’re from the same WAEC syllabus. WAEC also sometimes repeats questions  word-for-word.

Exposure: Regular practice exposes you to your weaknesses and gives you a chance to better yourself before the exam.

Decreases chances of anxiety: Regular and efficient practice improves your confidence before the exam.

These and many more are some of the beautiful benefits of practising WASSCE Core Mathematics past questions.

So it’s important you make it a habit to regularly practice with the past question papers.  This, no doubt, would help you achieve the grades you desire on the WASSCE on the long run.

Don’t just focus only on the WAEC past questions we provide on this page. We also have other WASSCE related resources that will be of great help to you.

Below this section are the General Mathematics WASSCE / WAEC past questions we have for now. Feel free to use them in accordance to the rules stated on this page and our Terms of Service.

Good luck!
