WAEC suspends manual confirmation of results

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has announced the suspension of manual confirmation or stamping of its certificates.

This is coming after the launching of its Digital Certificate Platform for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.

The examination body urged candidates who sat the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) from 1999 till date, its stakeholders and the general public to utilise the digital certificate platform to ease the bottlenecks associated with the manual access and confirmation system.

Moyosola Adesina, the council’s acting Head of Public Affairs, announced the development in a statement on Sunday.

“The WAEC Digital Certificate Platform allows candidates to access, download, and share their original WAEC certificates,” the statement reads. “Institutions and organisations can also promptly and securely confirm the certificates of candidates.

“Note that certificates accessed and shared through the platform are authentic and sourced directly from the WAEC database.

“We kindly request that institutions, organisations, agencies, embassies, high commissions, among others, provide email addresses for the digital sharing, receiving, and verification of certificates,” the statement added.
