Like 2 Comments

What does it mean when WAEC held/witheld results?
What does it mean to have outstanding in some subjects in WAEC result?
What does it mean to be replied by WAEC server with ‘No Result For This Candidate in the specified year‘?
 
Some candidates were shown one of the tags above in the course of checking their WAEC Result Online. We have decided to define these terms, so that candidates will be able to know where they fall in and the probability of getting their results released.
 
MEANING OF WITHHELD WAEC RESULT
Possibility of release: Slim
 
This occurs when almost all the candidates in a particular centre had same grade. WAEC will further investigate the result. If truly the candidates engaged in any form of malpractice during the exam, such results would be seized and not released. But if reverse is the case, they would be released.
 
MEANING OF HELD WAEC RESULT
Possibility of release: Slim
 
Almost the same thing with withheld. Held result mostly occur when a written remark is made on a candidate answer booklet relating to malpractice and other examination offences.
 
MEANING OF OUTSTANDING IN WAEC RESULT
Possibility of release: Medium
 
Outstanding in some subject(s) mostly occur when a student is recorded as present in exams, but the mark on the subject(s) are not concluded. It can also be cause by extra answer sheet. i.e. when not properly attached or some other factors.
 
MEANING OF ‘NO RESULT FOR THIS CANDIDATE IN THE SPECIFIED YEAR‘ IN WAEC RESULT
Possibility of release: Slim
 
This often happened to candidates that registered with special centres.
 
If you are not guilty of any examination offences and your result shows any of the tags stated above, there is high possibility of release.
Conclusively, if you/your centre engaged in examination malpractice, don’t fool yourself, WAEC might have caught you. All hope is not lost yet, check the recommendation below:
