WASSCE / WAEC Past Questions & Practise Tests

Welcome to the largest WASSCE past questions collection on the web and this is not an exaggeration.

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

All the WAEC past questions on this page have been 100% free since day one and would likely remain so 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 past papers to post on other forums or websites without giving us credit.
  • DO NOT sell any WAEC past paper you downloaded from Larnedu.
  • DO NOT post any WASSCE 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 past question papers or who want easy access to the past question papers on their mobile devices or computers.

About the WASSCE (essential information)

The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is a type of standardized test taken in Anglophone West African countries, namely: Ghana, Liberia, Gambia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. It is administered by WAEC (West African Examination Council), and is usually taken by students who wish to proceed to the University in their country or abroad.

The WASSCE 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 paper (for a specific subject and year) is usually the same from one anglophone country to another. But questions on the WASSCE theory section, may be specified to be answered by candidates from a particular country.

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.

If you are searching for WASSCE past questions, there are just very few places around the web that provide WASSCE / WAEC past questions like we do.

Students often cram before a test, but the research shows distributed practice, studying over many sessions, results in better long-term retention, the researchers write. And while most students see testing as an undesirable necessity of education, the fact is that testing also improves learning. Practice testing may work through a number of mechanisms. When students retrieve target information their related knowledge is activated. Practice testing may also help students organize information.“One concern here is that students who do well in earlier grades, in which learning is largely supervised, may struggle later, when they are expected to regulate much of their own learning, such as in high school or college,” write the researchers. “Teaching students to use these techniques would not take much time away from teaching content and would likely be most beneficial if the use of the techniques was consistently taught across multiple content areas, so that students could broadly experience their effects on learning and class grades.”—Source: http://www.ernweb.com/educational-research-articles/learning-techniques-effective-study/

WASSCE / WAEC past question papers can help you

Come to think of this:

Footballers, body builders, teachers, doctors, etc., practice to get better at their profession. Therefore, students who wish to prepare for the WASSCE need to practice with actual questions that have been asked on the WASSCE.

The WASSCE / WAEC past questions we provide on this site are meant to help do that.

Benefits of regular WAEC past questions practice

Speed: Regular practice of our WASSCE 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 past questions.

So it’s important you make it a habit to regularly practice with the past question papers we have here. There’s no doubt that this would help you achieve the grades you desire on the WASSCE on the long run.
