2020 WAEC Held Results is Out [Check Yours Now]

Are you among candidates whose 2020 WAEC were withheld (held)? We are happy to inform you that the held results have been released.

withheld waec result

This is to inform all WAEC candidates whose 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) was held that the board has released the results of candidates who weren’t found guilty of the malpractice allegations.

However, the results of candidates who were found guilty of the exam malpractice allegations have been CANCELED. If a result is cancelled, it can’t be released again!

All affected candidates can now recheck their results.

How to Check WAEC Result Online:

  • Go to WAEC result checking portal at www.waecdirect.org.
  • Enter your WASSCE Examination Number in the required column.
  • Select your Examination Year i.e. 2020.
  • Select your Examination Type i.e. SCHOOL CANDIDATE RESULT.
  • Enter the Card Serial Number.
  • Enter the Card PIN.
  • Finally, click “Submit” button to get your Result.

If your result was released CONGRATULATIONS. You can now proceed with your school’s admission process.

If your result was cancelled, then sorry, sit for another exam. Don’t beat yourself too hard. This is one of life challenges and at the end of the journey, everything will work for your good.

If you sat for the 2020 NECO SSCE exams, then we pray you pass the exam with fying colors. Else, we strongly recommend you register for the ongoing NECO GCE. The way the 2020 admission process has been delayed, most schools will accept the result.

The entire ALLSCHOOL TEAM wishes you best of luck in your academic pursuit.

After checking your results, please share with us if they released/cancelled yours. We have been waiting for this news since. Now that it’s out, please share with us.

WAEC 2020 NEC Meeting

Recall the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) announced that the cases of 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) held Results for school candidates will be investigated during this year’s NEC meeting scheduled to hold between Thursday 10th to Saturday, 12th December 2020.

In the meeting, it was decided (as earlier promised) that some results will be RELEASED very soon, and some CANCELLED.

Also in the meeting, the NEC unanimously agreed to suspend some centers from conducting the WASSCE for a number of years.

You can read the full outcome of the meeting below. Click the image for a better view.

Conclusion on WAEC Held Results:

WASSCE (WAEC) Result is held if there is/are reports of examination malpractice. The report can be candidate-based or exam-center-based.

If it’s candidate-based, then in a center just the candidate’s result will be held. But if it is exam-center-based, the results of the entire center will be held.

A held WAEC result can either be released or canceled after the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) meeting. In the meeting, the NEC will investigate the exam malpractice allegations.

A held result will be released if the candidate/exam-center are not guilty of examination malpractice allegations and will be canceled if they are guilty of the allegations.

Now let’s talk about the WAEC Outstanding Result:

The WASSCE results of 81,718 candidates were Outstanding/Pending (i.e they couldn’t be processed due to some errors on the part of the candidates).

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 a pencil;
  • Mistakes in entries leading to duplication of subjects.

Such errors are being corrected to enable all the affected candidates get their full results.

Please note that ALL Outstanding results will be released.
