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 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 the school management latest within a year after the exams. 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,

The Electronic Certificate Management System (e-CertMan) is an online portal designed to automate the process of issuance of certificates based on requests by individuals who sat WASSCE for Private Candidates. From the point of application through to the pickup stage, candidates would be able to track the stages of their certificate requisition. 

The new process is a departure from the old arrangement whereby candidates must collect their certificates from the Zonal/Branch offices where they wrote their examination. Candidates can now collect their certificates from any of their preferred pick-up locations (WAEC Offices) across the country. However, they would be required to provide valid means of identification such as a National Identity Card, Drivers License and International Passport at the designated pick-up locations.

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 colour
  1. Visit https://certrequest.waec.ng
  2. Enter your WAEC GCE registration number
  3. Make a payment online for the service
  4. After payment, click on Request Original certificate/Result

Note: If the website is not available, as 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!
