WAEC Syllabus for Science, Art & Commercial Subjects 2024/2025

The WAEC syllabus is the topics you must study to sit for the examination. It contains the aims and objectives, notes and format for the exam.

Each subject you will take in the WAEC has a syllabus for it.

Studying the syllabuses is necessary for your exam preparation. It will serve as a guide for you to know the topics to read. There are also notes on concepts you should pay attention to learning.

Exam preparations without using the syllabus are like going to the farm without your agricultural tools. You will end up not being productive.

Ensure you begin your exam preparations using the syllabus.

This post contains the syllabus of the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

Let me know in the comment section if you have any questions.

    • It is certainly possible for you to write WAEC from SS2, even if you are struggling with mathematics and physics.

      Here are some tips to help you improve your understanding of these subjects and prepare for the WAEC exam:

      1. Seek help from your teachers: Don’t hesitate to ask your teachers for extra help after class or during office hours. They can provide you with personalized guidance and address any specific areas of difficulty you may be facing.

      2. Join a study group: Find classmates or peers who share similar interests and challenges in mathematics and physics. Form a study group and meet regularly to review concepts, work on problems together, and discuss different approaches to solving problems.

      3. Utilize online resources: There are numerous online platforms and educational websites that offer interactive lessons, practice problems, and video tutorials in mathematics and physics. Explore these resources to supplement your learning and gain a deeper understanding of the material.

      4. Practice regularly: Consistent practice is essential for mastering mathematical and physical concepts. Set aside dedicated time each day to practice solving problems, working through exercises, and reviewing concepts.

      5. Seek additional support: If you find that you need more intensive support, consider hiring a tutor or enrolling in a supplementary math or physics course. A qualified tutor can provide personalized instruction and tailored strategies to address your specific learning needs.

      6. Develop a positive mindset: Believe in your ability to improve and approach your studies with a positive attitude. Mathematics and physics can be challenging, but with dedication, perseverance, and the right resources, you can overcome these challenges and succeed in your studies.

      Remember, it’s never too late to improve your understanding of mathematics and physics. With consistent effort, a positive attitude, and the right support, you can achieve your academic goals and excel in the WAEC exam.

  2. Hello Mr Blessing, please can we have a pdf file of these, it will be much more helpful.

    Secondly, I’d like to know how this syllabus is drawn out. Is it by you or WAEC itself?

    If it is by WAEC, then how can I get it from them directly.
    Thank you.

  3. Please I need ur help or advice
    I want to write waec gce but I am struggling to read and I don’t know if u can help me with any Tutorial group

    • I understand your concern. Reading is an essential skill for success in the WAEC GCE exams. Here are some tips to help you improve your reading skills:

      1. Set aside time for reading every day. Even if it’s just for 30 minutes, make sure to read something that you enjoy. This will help you build the habit of reading and make it easier to focus when you’re studying for the exams.

      2. Find a quiet place to read where you won’t be interrupted. This could be a library, a study room, or even your bedroom. If you can, find a place where you can read without any distractions, such as your phone or TV.

      3. Read actively. This means taking notes, highlighting important points, and asking yourself questions as you read. Don’t just read the words on the page; try to understand what the author is trying to say.

      4. Practice reading different types of texts. The WAEC GCE exams will cover a variety of subjects, so it’s important to be able to read and understand different types of texts. Practice reading textbooks, articles, essays, and even fiction.

      5. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you’re struggling to read, don’t be afraid to ask for help from a teacher, tutor, or friend. They can help you identify your weaknesses and develop strategies to improve your reading skills.

    • No, Oluwatosin

      They are not hard.

      Accounting questions in the WAEC are designed to assess the knowledge and understanding of accounting principles, concepts, and techniques.

      Some students may find certain accounting questions challenging, while others may find them relatively easier based on their familiarity with the topic and their level of preparation.

  4. Thank you very much for this enlighten, but I want to ask what about the following subjects as a commercial student hope it’s fine
    English Language.
    Civic Education.
    Biology or Agriculture or Geography.

    • If you’re struggling with further maths, there are several things you can do to improve:

      1. Practice, practice, practice: One of the best ways to improve further maths is to practice regularly. Try to work through as many practice problems as possible, and if you get stuck on a particular concept, don’t be afraid to ask for help.

      2. Seek help: Don’t hesitate to ask your teacher or tutor for help. They are there to help you and can provide additional resources and guidance to help you improve.

      3. Break down the problems: Try breaking down the issues into smaller parts, and work on solving each piece individually. This can make the situation seem less daunting and help you tackle it more easily.

      4. Use online resources: Several online resources, such as Khan Academy and YouTube videos, can provide further explanations and examples for complex concepts.

      Remember, everyone struggles with something at some point. Don’t give up, and keep practising. With time and effort, you can improve in further maths.

    • Sure, here are some typical topics and types of questions that you might encounter in the Further Mathematics WAEC exam:

      1. Complex numbers: questions can range from converting between polar and rectangular forms, finding roots of equations, solving quadratic equations with complex roots, and more.

      2. Matrices and determinants: questions may involve matrix multiplication, finding the inverse of a matrix, solving linear equations using matrices, and computing the determinant of a matrix.

      3. Vectors: questions may involve finding the magnitude and direction of vectors, adding and subtracting vectors, and solving problems using vector algebra.

      4. Series and sequences: questions can range from finding the sum of arithmetic and geometric sequences, calculating limits of sequences, and solving problems using power series.

      5. Calculus: questions may involve finding derivatives and integrals of functions, solving optimization problems, and solving differential equations.
