Collection of WAEC Certificates is Online: How to Get Yours

I recently dropped a post on how to request printing of WAEC certificate or Original WAEC result directly from the internet. By this, I didn’t mean the notification of result you’re used to print at cafes as soon as your result is loaded online - after the release. I meant, instead of getting your original result from a school principal or WAEC office, you could just walk into a café and request printing your original certificate by WAEC.

As at the time of the post referred above, the exams body has hinted us on her plan to go e-certificate. In fact, a link to access that was given which I included in the post.

This is WAEC certificate or Original WAEC result

However, the link had not been fully activated. And till the time of this post too, the link remains inactive. You can check to see if things have changed.

Earlier, the body disclosed this e-certificate facility may not be opened to candidates who wrote WAEC GCE, I have reason to believe now that it could be extended to school candidates too i.e those who wrote WAEC May/June.

News now has it that the body has reaffirmed their plan to move fully to e-certificate for all their exams.

Worried by the problem of abandoned certificates, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said it will deploy an Electronic Certificate Management System to facilitate the issuance of certificates to candidates.

According to Head, Public Affairs, Mr. Damianus Ojijeogu, the online system will enable the council to print certificates of candidates only on request.

Summary of the Discussion with WAEC on the Online Printing of Certificate or Original Result

  1. With this in place, it will assist the council in the decongesting backlog of certificates lying fallow for several years with very few owners coming up to collect them.
  2. Any candidate that wants his or her result will go online to make a request and leave an address of where it would be delivered.
  3. It does not matter where they wrote the examination.
  4. The process has reached an advanced stage and hopefully, by 2019, the mechanism would be deployed. Subscribe to this blog to know when it is started fully.


WAEC internal and external candidates should be on the lookout for this mechanism. It’s of course a good development to safe candidates’ time, money and other resources.

However, this doesn’t mean that you would walk into a café and print your certificate out. No! You can only place a request that WAEC should send your certificate to your address.
