What is WAEC Withheld Result?

According to Adenipekun, some of the results were withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice.”

In simple words, it was reported that you or your center were involved in examination malpractice.

WAEC will investigate the report and if the candidates/school were found culpable, their results will be cancelled.

If they are not culpable then their results will be released.

When will the withheld result be released? No exact date yet!

The Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) will meet next week to decide on the malpractice cases arising from the conduct of that examination and others.
