Have seen many cases in which candidates give their pin and exam number to people to help them check their waec result.

To avoid the unnecessary sharing of examination number we have given out this post. Checking your waec result is simple.

You don’t need a phone to browse until you try it out. Were you wondering how? Don’t fret.

We will discuss here all issues related to the checking of the result, but we may not include yours. Just use our comment to box to ask anything you did not understand.

Based on the statistics of the result, 64.18% get the minimum of five (5) credits in their compulsory subject including English language and Mathematics.

Reasons you should not reveal your pin & exam number.

Not everyone you see deserves of being optimistic. Some are scammers who have no other job than scamming their fellow human beings. Consider the below points.

The pin may be given to another candidate:

some waec result checkers you believe are just scratch card dealers.

If you immediately give them your pin and serial number, they’ll sell it to another user, then they’ll tell you somebody’s already using the pin you’ve given them, not knowing they’re the one.

Not only that, the person you gave could be a candidate who needs this pin to check his/her own. Instead of buying, he/she might use yours.

Your result will be publicly shared:

There are those who tag the exam upgraders themselves. They can share your result publicly as proof of their upgrade. which is not.

Come to think of it if an examiner sees the post. He might think you did waec upgrade and he might reduce your grades whereas you did nothing of such.

We hope you get the message we’ve transmitted, please don’t be the victim.

Perhaps you were prohibited by your parents from using phones here are people you can call.

Your brother or any member of your family

Contact any of them, they’re the people I’m confident they can’t do anything like that.

If I mention your brother I didn’t include street brothers, please do not misquote me.

Cyber café:  Whether you are a computer literate or not, cyber café is there to provide this service for you together with printing.

If you can operate the computer, visit the café that offers internet service and tell them you want to buy time.

This time depends on the minutes or hours you will need to check your waec result.

In case there is a good network connection that should not take up to 10 minutes.

If you are to buy time, you can get 30 minutes and once you finish checking it, you can use the remaining time to do something else on the internet or keep reading well prepared educational content such as past questions, school news, tutorials, e.t.c on our blog.

To those who don’t know about computers just walk up to the receptionist there you want to check your waec result. provide her with your examination number, pin, serial number and year of the exam that all.

Mistake mostly made while checking result on the portal

Choosing the wrong year: immediately some click on the submit button, it displays another candidate result to them here is the cause.

Two candidates might share the same examination but there will surely be different which Is the year of exam.

Let’s take for instance my examination number is 46* and I did my exam in 2019. While checking my result, I selected 2016 as my year of exam.

Don’t be surprised it might show up another candidate result. When checking your result always put the year into consideration.

Exam type: you will see a drop-down menu on the portal to select the exam you sat for. Because of the name used to tag it, many can’t differentiate.

We have both school candidates and private candidates in the option. Some might say school candidates are those who did theirs in a government school.

Likewise, private candidates are for those who registered and sat in a private school for their exams.

Let me just clarify that.

The West Africa Examination Council allows two main examinations that we know mostly to be WAEC and GCE.

Those who have registered for WAEC May/June are those who have been recognized as a candidate for school as well as those who have participated in GCE are known to be private candidates. Please note, to avoid complaints about your waec result.
