A confirmation of result can be processed by submitting to WAEC the following:

  1. One plain foolscap envelope
  2. One stamped, addressed envelope for each confirmation of results
  3. =N=250 postage stamp for local mails
  4. =N=350 postage stamp for international mails
  5. An affidavit sworn to in a court of law which should contain the following details:

  7. Fee for confirmation of resultis:
    1. =N=10,000.00 per result for overseas institutions
    2. =N=5,000.00 per result for institutions within Nigeria

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

WAEC does not prepare candidates for its examinations by establishing secondary schools or tutorial centres, and no such institutions are affiliated to the Council.

WAEC provides feedback in the form of Chief Examiners' Report on candidates' perofrmance in the various papers for each examination diet, which helps schools and private candidates to prepare adequately for subsequent examinations. The Chief Examiners' Reports are avialable for sale at the Council's offices nationwide.

Yes, but only if (s)he is a school candidate. No provision is made for a private candidate in this regard. Even then, a school candidate does not write directly to WAEC. It is her/his principal who, knowing the candidate's ability, forwards a request for the review of the candidate's scripts. Of course, there is a specified fee to be paid on every paper to be reviewed. Such requests should be sent in within sixty days of any examination.

Results are partially released due to queries arising from one or a combination of the following mistakes:

  • Wrong transfer of examination numbers in one or more papers;
  • Failure to shade examination numbers;
  • Shading objective sheets with biro pens instead of pencil;
  • Mistakes in entries leading to duplication of subjects.

A comprehensive list of offences is provided in Council's Regulations & Syllabuses.

  • 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 organised cheating in the exam hall;
  • All other acts that contravene the rules governing the conduct of the examination.

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.

To cater for the needs of candidates and propective candidates alike, WAEC has created the following channels for candidate interaction;
