When Will WAEC Release HELD Results?

If you have read my post "Why WAEC/NECO/NABTEB Withholds or Outstands Results", a quick reference was made to the time you should be expecting WAEC to release your results if held.


However, the focus of that post was to list why the results were held in the first place. So, also the post included the reasons for outstanding and when outstanding results will be released which in summary should be in a few days or weeks after the release of the results.


For the held results, however, the time to be released needs a special look at the situations surrounding it and there is a particular month of the year to look up to every now and then.


Some students are curious to know how soon WAEC will release their held results. In this post, I will be answering your question.

WAEC Will Release HELD Results Following the NEC Meeting

Yearly, WAEC has to set up a committee which is named NEC. The Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) is the Council's highest decision-making organ on examination-related matters.


This committee will look into the reported cases and decide on results to be eventually released and those to be finally canceled.


Their meetings hold every November (with necessary changes if important. For example, the meeting was held, for 2021 May/June, between Tuesday, 27th to Wednesday, 28th April 2021). Hence, before a student with held results can know his final fate, it will be after this sitting.

WAEC Will Release HELD Results in November

Though no date will be announced prior to the NEC meeting for the release of HELD results, affected students and the public should be aware that cleared results will be released before the end of November.


From experience, it's safe to say that the NEC meeting will be held in the mid of the month, while the results should be out 20th to the 25th of the month.

Official Updates On Release Period For HELD Results

In buttress of my point that WAEC held results will be released by November, below is the official announcement for the 2022 WAEC May/June.


Please be informed that Candidates whose results were “ Withheld or Held”  for their alleged involvement in examination malpractice, will know their fate after the Nigeria Examination Committee( NEC), meets in November 2022. Note that the results of those not found guilty will be released while the results of those found guilty will be canceled. Thank you.

Important Official Conditions to Note After NEC Decisions

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), wishes to inform candidates, stakeholders, and the general public that there is now a time limit for them to challenge the decisions of the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) on examination malpractice cases. This is because NEC, which is the Council's highest decision-making organ on examination-related matters rose from its meeting with the following decisions:


  1. All exhibits should be disposed of one (1) year after the release of results;
  2. The decision to dispose of exhibits one year after the release of results should be publicized using the Council's website, social media, paid advertisements, schools, and direct contact with candidates;
  3. Appeals against NEC decisions should be received from affected schools/candidates within one (1) year from the date of the release of results of the examination;
  4. Appeals against decisions taken years ago should cease after one (1) year from this decision taken at the 71st Meeting of NEC;
  5. All exhibits in storage in the Council should be properly disposed of at the expiration of a period of one (1) year from the date of the decision of this Committee if there are no pending litigations that would require them.


This development is in keeping with the Council's Vision and Mission and in consonance with international best practices. Candidates, stakeholders, and the general public should, therefore, take note.
