What are those things
that determine
Students’
Performance?
It is generally believed that Cost, Location, etc.
are synonymous with Quality and Quantity.
For instance; it is evident that Public schools are
cheaper to attend compared to their Private
counterparts, but are there corroborative evidence
when it comes to the performance of the Pupils in
National Examinations?
Does the cost of School Fees, Location, School
Age, School system and Type, etc. play any
significant role in determining how well Pupils
perform in WAEC / NECO? Also, are there any
statistical evidence showing the effect of Location
on Pupils performances?

*Fees in Naira
Of this 460 schools; only 234 have WAEC results
available for 3 years and were used for the study.
Two Variables were derived from the result;
Quantity of Passes & Quality of Passes (Best Result Analysis)
Quantity of Passes : Implies the percentage of Pupils
with passes compared to the total enrollment for WAEC
Quality of Passes : Implies the degree of passes based
on the Best Result. Results are provided in A, B & C; a
Candidate with 5A’s is regarded to have performed better
than one with 3A’s.
Each Best Result is converted as follows:
3A’s, 4B’s, 1C
Let A = 5, B = 4, C = 3
3*5 + 4*4 + 1*3 = 15+16+1 = 32
A candidate with 3A’s, 4B’s, 1C
is converted to 32 using the
substitution as illustrated
This conversion is done so as to get a statistic
which measures the quality of Pupils result.

The analysis so far seek to establish the relationship
between “Schools’ Best Result ” over 3years against:






Location of School,
School System – Boarding / Day,
School type – Mixed / Unisex,
School Fees,
Curriculum,
Year Founded
 The top 3 schools are located in Abuja, Abia & Adamawa
 On the average Day only school system perform better
 The performance of Mixed schools are far better than single sex;
in fact, only one Girls only school emerged in the top 47 schools
 Schools with high fees show no academic advantage over their
low-paying schools
 Nigerian Curriculum still stand as the most preferred, 35 of the 47
schools use Nigerian Curriculum.
 Academic performance & Age of school show indirect
relationship; marginally, the younger the school, the better the
performance
Quantity of Result
How many Students Passed?
%
The Quantity of Result is about the number of Students
who obtained at least credit passes in WAEC.
Why is this important?
While it is admirable to produce the best result, what
percentage of the entire student also achieved success?
This analysis, like the foregoing, seeks to establish the
school with the best performance measured against
Location, School system, Type, Curriculum, Year
founded and School Fees.
Which would you rather prefer; enroll your
Children/Wards in the school with the Best Result or the
School with the best quantity of Passes or both?
Whatever is your decision, in a short while you will find
statistical evidence for or against it.

The following observations were made from the
analysis of Students Pass Rate against:






Location of School,
School System – Boarding / Day,
School type – Mixed / Unisex,
School Fees,
Curriculum,
Year Founded
 Nine of the top 17 schools are located in Lagos
 On the average Day school system perform better
 The performance of Mixed schools are far better than single sex;
1 Girls only and 3 Boys only schools emerged in the top 50.
 Schools fees seems to matter when it comes to consistency in
academic performance
 Nigerian Curriculum is the most preferred; 30 of the 50 schools
use Nigerian Curriculum beside those with Nigeria and others.
 Academic performance & Age of school show indirect
relationship; marginally, the younger the school, the better the
performance
Conclusion:
 Location of School may not matter when it comes to Student
with Best Results; but it does matter for percentage of Passes.
 Students who attend Day & Boarding Schools are most likely to
perform better than Day or Boarding Only schools.
 Mixed schools’ performance is excellent in both “Best Result”
analysis and “Percentage of Passes”. None of Boys or Girls
Only came close, however Boys Only perform better than Girls
Only.
 The relationship between School Fees and Performance is not
well defined; though schools with high fees show more in top
performance.
 Nigerian Curriculum is the most preferred, either in “Best
Result” analysis or Percentage of Passes.
 In this analysis; Age is just a number when it comes to
Performance. Younger schools really outperformed older ones.
