Request Original WAEC Certificate/Result Online at certrequest.waec.ng

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 certificates 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 candidate (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 the school management latest within a year (officially 90 days) after the release of the results online. For example, if you write the exams in 2015, your certificate should be there by 2016 or 2017.
  2. This guide (you will read to the end) to request a WAEC certificate online ONLY affects WAEC GCE candidates.
  3. In the case you've 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 the result (i.e notification of WAEC result) instead, kindly follow the guide in “WAEC Results Out! 8 Steps to Check the result on https://www.waecdirect.org”.

Guide to Print WAEC GCE Certificate or Original Result online

According to WAEC,

Private candidates can now make requests for their certificates. The requested certificate would be delivered to any WAEC office of choice. Candidates would be required to provide valid means of identification at the designated pick-up location (WAEC office). Please be advised that certificate processing may take 10 to 30 days.

Payment for the service and status information would all be handled through the portal. Candidates can request for their certificates up to WASSCE for Private Candidates, 2019-Second Series, and after.

Applications can be made online via https://certrequest.waec.ng

PAYMENT PROCEDURE
Payments can be made through the portal, Banks-in-branch (Payments via all Branches of Banks), USSD, or Debit Cards (MasterCard, Visa, and Verve) to the designated WAEC Account. The certificate collection fee is Four Thousand Seven Hundred Naira (N4,700) only. 

Hence, follow the step below to print your Certificate in color
  1. Visit https://certrequest.waec.ng
  2. Click on REQUEST CERTIFICATE
  3. Next, take the right exam diet i.e Private Candidate First Series or Private Candidate Second Series
  4. Select the correct year and enter your WAEC GCE registration number
  5. Continue to make a payment online for the service
  6. After payment, click on Request Original certificate/Result. A reference number will be issued to you for further use
  7. You can now be checking the application status using the reference number given to you and the exam registration number

Note: If the website is not available, at the time of checking, kindly check back or visit the WAEC office of the state of exams for the physical collection.


If Unavailable, Consider Collecting Certificate at WAEC Office

Following the guide above, the website may be unavailable or temporarily down. In that case, you can collect it at the body's office - as instructed below.

You will collect it at the WAEC office in the State you sat the examination with the following:
  1. One passport photo
  2. Photocard
  3. Computer print out of the result
  4. N5,000 cash (payable to WAEC)
  5. NB: If your certificate has stayed in the WAEC office for more than 4years, the Custody Fee will apply.

ATTENTION!

  3. Hello sir. I wrote my waec/GCE in 2005. I was at the WAEC office Sokoto severally year after year and was told the whole result for the said year had printing problem, hence the certificate was not printed. So I had to travel down to sokoto from Ibadan anytime I need my result to get the confirmation of result. Please this has really given me set back in the past years as it isn’t possible for me to travel this far again for my results after several requests. Please What can I do, I am so helpless and this is affecting me.
