WAEC: How to Correct/Edit Wrong State/Local Government of Origin (2019/2020 Guide)

Let's get this straight. It's possible to make mistakes in the state or local government filled for your WAEC registration (Be it WAEC exams for school candidates or private ones). Such error may come from a candidate, exams officer or the cafe that registered you for that matter.

But it can be so confusing if you don’t know what to do about such an error.

You may want to know if it's possible to alter your state or local government of origin after the submission of your registration for online. Some candidates don't find this alternation necessary until after the release of their results.

Then, the questions are, "what should you do if there's a mix-up in the state or local government used?" “Is there any solution?”

The answer is YES. There's a solution to that...
First, candidates with a series of issues in WAEC or similar concerns had found my post, "WAEC: Answers to Students' Questions Before Obtain the Form or Use the Results for Admissions" very helpful. The post addresses more than a dozen of candidate’s problems regards WAEC.

How to Change Incorrect State/Local Government in WAEC Registrations

And to guide you on how to correct this error, follow the guide as prescribed by WAEC - officially.

Visit the nearest WAEC office to lodge this complaint. They will handle it.

There's no officially announced charge for this service but you'll do well going there with some bucks as such service will usually attract something. I don’t expect this fee to break your bank anyway.

Similar Situations

  1. If you're registering for WAEC GCE and saved your information along the way, you could return to the form, make some editing before final submission.
  2. If you're a school candidate (May/June student), you could talk to your school principal or exams officer. They may prefer to contact WAEC office for the changes on your behalf.

Why is the right State/Local Government Important for WAEC Registration

Due to this limited stress you will be exposed to, you may want to consider giving up on the correction. Kindly understand that using or accepting the wrong ones could be a serious mistake for your future chases, career etc

In this political engulfed society, you may want to, in the future, contest for any post which is state/local government centred. You may be deprived of such position especially if your opposition finds out your academic record shows another state.

For employment opportunity too, your state may be used to decide if you'll be given a space.
