22 WAEC FAQS FOR PARENTS OF STUDENTS IN NIGERIAN SECONDARY SCHOOLS (PART 2)

CONTINUED FROM PART1

…mason college students on stage…well-groomed for life after school!…

(11) Q. Why are some results cancelled?

A. Results are cancelled when candidates are found guilty of examination malpractice.

(12)Q. What are the acts that constitute examination malpractice?

A. The following, among others, constitute examination malpractice:

— Candidates bringing books or cribs into the
examination hall;
— Insulting or assaulting any examination official;
— Swapping of scripts in an examination hall;
— Replacing their answer scripts with another one during or after the examination;
— Impersonation;
— Taking part in mass or organized cheating in the exam hall;
— All other acts that contravene the rules governing the conduct of the examination.

A comprehensive list of offenses is provided in Council’s Regulations & Syllabuses.

NOTE:WE HAVE THIS LIST AND SHALL PUBLISH IT LATER

(13)Q. Can one combine May/June and Nov/Dec WASSCE results for admission purposes?
A. Yes.

(14)Q. How can a candidate get errors on his/her certificates corrected?

A. A Private candidate sends his/her request for an amendment to WAEC directly, while in the case of a school candidate it is the principal who makes the request.
In the two instances, the original copy of the certificate should be sent along with the application for amendment. WAEC charges a fee for the amendment where it is discovered that the error emanated from the candidate, otherwise, it is free.

(15)Q. Why is it that candidates sometimes have partial release of results?

A. Results are partially released due to queries arising from one or a combination of the following mistakes:
(a) Wrong transfer of examination numbers in one or more papers; (b) Failure to shade examination numbers;
(c) Shading objective sheets with biro pens instead of pencil;
(d) Mistakes in entries leading to duplication of subjects.

(16) Q. How does a candidate collect his/her certificate?

A. School candidates collect their certificates from their schools while private candidates obtain theirs directly from WAEC.

(17)Q. What Is the official life-span of WAEC Certificates?
A. WAEC certificates have no expiry date.

(18 )Q. Does WAEC replace lost certificates?
A. No. Instead it issues statements of result to the owners of lost certificates or, when necessary, confirms their results for a fee.

(19)Q, How does one process a confirmation of result?

A. A confirmation of result can be processed by submitting to WAEC the following:
— One plain foolscap envelope
— One stamped, addressed envelope for each confirmation of results
— =N=250 postage stamp for local mails
— =N=350 postage stamp for international mails
— An affidavit sworn to in a court of law which should contain the following details:

Candidate’s Name (in full)
Name of Examination
Year of Examination
— Two copies of candidate’s passport photograph per result
— Fee for confirmation of result is:
=N=5,000.00 per result for overseas institutions….to be reconfirmed
=N=1,500.00 per result for institutions within Nigeria……to be reconfirmed

Confirmed results are not handed over to candidates. They are sent direct to the institutions/establishments which candidates want to provide with   the             information.

(20) Q. What channels of communication exist between candidates and WAEC?

A. WAEC discourages direct communication with school candidates. School candidates are expected to send their complaints to WAEC through their school principals, while private candidates contact WAEC directly.

(21) Q. Which WAEC Offices issue certificates ?

A. Candidates can collect their certificates from WAEC Zonal and Branch offices in charge of the state where they sat for the examination.

(22)Q. Does WAEC accredit certificates, say, from foreign institutions?

A. No. accreditation is carried out by the Federal Ministry of Education alone.

FOR ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO US  OR WAEC DIRECTLY. GOODLUCK

  2. Sir please am in my 3rd year in abia poly when i discovered that waec has cancelled my result after 4year without notifing my school i wrote the exam 2008may/june i have my statement of result,internate print-out and master sheet what do i do sir

    Like

    • Are u saying WAEC changed its mind concerning your results?…WAEC cannot cancel any result without your school knowing…were you the only one whose result was cancelled?…reason?…
      WAEC releases results in batches…if your school fails to pick up a batch of results containing a cancelled result you cannot say that WAEC failed to “notify” your school…same if the school collected but its officers got careless by not comparing the last batch from WAEC with what they had before…unfortunately this is common in many schools

      Then you used internet print-out for admission and did not go back to collect a statement of result from your school in the past 5 yrs!…why didn’t you?
      …are you sure your internet print-out was genuine?…are sure those grades were not faked deliberately for you by the 419 group claiming they can upgrade results?
      when is your school verification exercise coming up at the poly?…

Pls I have long given my passport and the principal has already sent them but till date no certificate yet. Pls what can i do to get my certificate because i need it urgently.

    • …chinwe,firstly,apologies for delayed reply…secondly WAEC will not give u the certificate except through your school…unfortunately some schools do not have the manpower or time to spend at WAEC offices!…the best you can do is to go to their office in PH and move the case yourself…get a copy of the school’s letter to back u up and tell them u only want to push the file to the stage of certificate collection by the school…

      …u will also look for or strike-up friendship with a senior officer in the waec office whom you need to pour your heart to…why?…waec is like civil service…the printing of a new certificate may take a while…especially as printing does not take place in P.H…so what that person needs to do is to ensure that your case gets to Lagos or Abuja as soon as possible….

      …meanwhile you can get a confirmatory letter of your result from waec to use in the interim…

      …by the way,has the school been told by WAEC how much to pay for reprinting?…if not then the school needs to tell u the truth or step up its follow-up work at WAEC…all the best…

      • Thank U very much for U responds. The school had already collected the money for reprinting, its just the delay that am worried about. I will try to do as U sugested and I hope I will get a timely response. U were are really a great help thank U once more.

        • …no 3rd party can help you on may/june certificates…waec will refer such persons back to your school…even waec will not deal with you either….unless something is wrong somewhere schools do not distinguish between internal or external students…by law you are bona fide a student of the school…if you go back to the school,beg them…and if they still refuse get a lawyer to write a letter addressed to the principal on the matter stating the letter will be copied to WAEC and the state MOE if no action is taken on the matter…but remember the saying that he who seeks equity must himself have clean hands…need we say more?…

    • …old boy, correcting a birthday on waec certificate can take a while…maybe 4 months to even 2yrs depending on how you start and follow it up…you did not specify whether its a GCE or MAY/JUNE cert…if it is a may/june cert your school will have to be involved because the originating letter for correction must come from the school and same for collection…but if its a GCE cert its a bit simpler…please go to the nearest waec office to ask for what steps to take…

    • …in plain in English…it means u can’t get any result no matter the amount of googling on the net…our suggestion is that you visit the nearest WAEC office to where your cousin took the exam…they will have a computer print out that can give you an idea of what happened…they might be able to tell you whether its a temporary problem or whether what u are seeing online is the final result…

    I want some clarifications about my waec and neco results. On my results the name is USMAN MUHAMMAD ABDULLAHI. I registered for waec and neco before realizing that my name on my passport is USMAN MOHAMMED. And even on all my documents is USMAN MOHAMMED meaning the problem is only on waec and neco results. So my question here is that can I change my name on the results to USMAN MOHAMMED through LEGAL process? And how can I do it? Can waec and neco office do that for me?

    I will be grateful if you respond. Here is my email: usman07064@yahoo.com
