Differences Between WAEC Attestation and Confirmation of Results

First posted on schoolcontents.info
I started this post when a reader asked to know if there is any difference between WAEC Attestation of Result and Confirmation of Result. A similar question is if there is a difference between confirmation of the result and transcript of the result.


In case you're confused, let me give you some background.

WAEC Issues Certificates, Attestation of Results, Confirmation of Results, and Transcript of Results

Generally, all WAEC candidates - be it WAEC Internal (school candidates, also called May/June) or WAEC GCE (Nov/Dec, 1st or 2nd series, also called private candidates), are entitled to documents called WAEC certificates or Original WAEC results. 


However, there are cases where this document could get lost, damaged, misplaced, burnt, or stolen. This is one of the cases this post will address.


Another scenario is when you even have the certificate but for certain official purposes, a body, school, or organization wants to ascertain the authenticity of the document. In fact, such an entity may ask you to request WAEC or any exam body to send the real breakdown of your result to them as a means to verify it. This is another case this post will address.

Attestation of WAEC Result

This is an official replacement document for candidates who lost or damage their results. If you lost your WAEC original result or Certificate, you can't get that back again because the exam body doesn't issue certificates more than once. 


However, if you read this post to the end, you'll see the alternative means to have your WAEC certificate yourself even if you've lost or damaged it.

As a provision for cases of loss, damage, accident, etc., WAEC will replace your original result with the Attestation of Results. And of course, there is no special difference between the two documents except for the title/name on them. 


While the original result will show "West African Senior Schools Certificate", the Attestation of Results will be indicated below the "West African Senior Schools Certificate" to reaffirm the difference. The picture above is the former while the one below is the latter.

How to Request for Attestation of Result at WAEC Office

In brief, to get WAEC attestation of the result, follow the following steps:


  1. Write a Letter of Attestation: to be written on a letterhead, stamped & signed by a clergyman, imam, or a court of law; 
  2. Collect a Sworn affidavit from a court of law; 
  3. Provide a Photocopy of the resulting printout from the WAEC website; 
  4. Include N10,000.00 excluding postage (if the candidate is outside the country). 
  5. Book for an approved courier service: prices depend on destination (if you're outside the country)

WAEC Confirmation/Transcript of Results

This is an official WAEC document issued on behalf of a candidate to an organization to affirm the originality of the WAEC result or certificate presented by the candidate to such an organization. Candidates and organizations can request confirmation or transcripts of results. 


Common bodies that may ask for this include WES Advisor which provides international students and skilled immigrants resources on immigration, employment, and education opportunities in the U.S. and Canada. 


This kind of request may be for the evaluation of the results for the purpose of admission or engagement. 


A candidate who asked this question will strictly need confirmation of the result.


I live in California and I’m trying to get my WAEC result mailed to a company here in the US directly. Please confirm if this is a service you offer.


You can apply for the Confirmation of your Results in any WAEC office and it will be sent directly to the institution, organization, embassy, etc. To get WAEC confirmation of the Result or Transcript, you apply to WAEC. The body will then prepare and send it to the concerned organization. 


Either Attestation of Results or Confirmation of the Result or Transcripts may be required if you are in the shoes of the candidates below. 


I laminated my GCE of 2002 and I want to legalize it at the embassy. Legalization is denied because I laminated it. I was asked to get a result notification from WAEC. I do I go about it and what's the cost?

Safe Yourself The Stress By Accessing, Download, and Sharing Your WAEC Result Online

While using the methods above, to get back an attestation of results and confirmation of the results remain valid, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has launched an online digital platform, where you can even get back your lost, stolen, or damaged WAEC/GCE certificate. 


With the same platform, you can share your digital certificate, which is exactly the same as the paper one, with any organization e.g. schools, or companies, requesting it.


To enjoy this benefit, follow the guide in the post, "WAEC Certificates Online: Access, Verify, download, share, and Print".

    2. Please I lost my waec GCE certificate but I have a scanned copy of the result. So I used it to apply for a school abroad. An offer was given but I need to legalize my original certificate and a mark sheet which is the waec GCE transcript.
      So I learnt getting an attestation of result takes like 3 months and I should go for a confirmation of result. Is it possible to get my waec GCE transcript or the Confirmation letter from waec can cover for it?

    1. There is probably nothin to do if what they wanted was the certificate. You just have to wait for the certificate and reapply for another year. And if it's possible to differ your admission, you can take advantage of that too. Read the post below.
