Request Original WAEC Certificate/Result Online at

Official WAEC Logo

I have got a series of questions. Candidates want to know if:
  1. it is possible to print their WAEC Certificates online
  2. there is any website to print WAEC original result or certificate
  3. WAEC has an open service to allow candidates to print their certificate directly from their website.

Well, the answer is YES and here is a guide to doing that.

But before then, let me handle some things.
  1. If you’re a WAEC school candidates (May/June), this post is not for you. To get your own certificate or original result, you must go back to your school. Your school is the one authorized to collect your certificate on your behalf. Such a certificate should be ready with management latest by two years after the exams. For example, if you write the exams in 2015, your certificate should be there by 2017 or 2018.
  2. This guide (you will read below) to request WAEC certificate online ONLY affects WAEC GCE candidates. The year of effect is 2017 henceforth.
  3. In the case, you have got your certificate earlier but lost, damaged or misplaced it, but now need another one, you will need to read my post “Lost WAEC Certificate? See How to Get New One or Attestation of Results
  4. If you intend to print result (i.e notification of WAEC result) instead, kindly follow the guide in “WAEC Results Out! 8 Steps to Check the result on”.
