WAEC Bans Manual Confirmation of Results

Date:

The Nigerian Office of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says the council will no longer use manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates who sat for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) from 1999 till date.

This followed the launch of the examination body’s digital certificate platform for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.

In a statement by the Council’s Acting Head of Public Affairs, Moyosola Adesina, WAEC urged its stakeholders and the general public to utilise the digital certificate platform to ease the bottlenecks associated with the manual access and confirmation system.

“WAEC 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,” the statement reads.

“In addition, efforts are underway to expand the platform to accommodate candidates from 1980 and updates will be provided to the public as they become available.

“The WAEC digital certificate platform can be accessed online through www.waec.org and the mobile version can be downloaded on the Android and IOS app stores.

“We kindly request that institutions, organisations, agencies, embassies, high commissions, etc, provide email addresses for the digital sharing, receiving, and verification of certificates. Furthermore, all concerned should please update their portals to accommodate the sharing of the WAEC certificate.”

The digital portal was launched by WAEC in October last year.

The exam body earlier said the initiative was to enable candidates access their lost or damaged certificates online.
