(11) Q. Why are some results cancelled?

— 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;

(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.
