WAEC Suspends Manual Result Confirmation

West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has suspended manual confirmation of West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) from 1999 till date.

This is coming five months after launching a digital platform for the confirmation of results.

Individuals, institutions or organisations requesting confirmation of any WAEC result from 1999 can now only do so through the digital portal, the examination body said.

A statement issued by the Acting Head, Public Affairs Department, Moyosola Adesina, says efforts are also underway for the platform to accommodate results from 1980.

“Nigeria is pleased to inform institutions, organisations, agencies, embassies, high commissions, and the general public that the Council will no longer provide manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates who sat the WASSCE from 1999 till date, as the Council has launched the WAEC Digital Certificate Platform for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.

“In addition, efforts are underway to expand the platform to accommodate candidates from 1980.

“Updates will be provided to the public as they become available,” the statement said.

It explained that the digital certificate platform allows candidates to access, download, and share their original WAEC certificates adding that Institutions and organisations can also promptly and securely confirm the certificates of candidates.

Recall that in October 2022, the examination body launched a digital platform where candidates can also recover burnt, lost, and damaged certificates online.

WAEC’s Head of National Office for Nigeria, Patrick Areghan, said it will cost N7,500 for new and old candidates to assess the platform, N3,500 to share and N5,000 for certificate confirmation.

He said the development of the portal was to ensure seamless and swift confirmation of results as well as to “eliminate fraud and send fakers out of the market.”
