Can I Use Another Person's Result for Admission/Job

He walked into my office to fill the Nigerian Army recruitment form. The poor guy came with a WAEC result that has the requirements for the position of non-tradesmen.

I was in the middle of the application when I noticed the names on the WAEC result were different from the ones he gave me to start the registration with. It was at this point I realized he wanted to use another person's results for the application.

I had a similar experience when a student seeking admission failed in his Mathematics, a required subject for the course "Architecture." He returned with another person's NECO result to fill his post-UTME before I detected the name difference.

In this post, let's address this. Is it possible to use another person's result for admission or a job? Especially if such result belongs to a friend, a brother, or a sister, will it be accepted for admission or job application?

Using Another Person's Result is Not Allowed

For either admission or jobs, it's not allowed to use another person's result. To be qualified for a position, you're required to use your own results, not someone else's.

The name of the applicants, as a result, should match the name on the O'level result or any other results. Using another person's results violates the application requirement.

It's Illegal to Use Another Person's Results

Using another person's result for admission or a job application is highly unethical and can lead to serious consequences. It is a form of academic dishonesty and fraud. Institutions and employers rely on accurate information from applicants to make fair and informed decisions. If you are caught using someone else's result, it can result in the following:

  1. Admission Revocation: If you're admitted to any educational institution through such means, your admission may be revoked once the deception is discovered.
  2. Job Termination: If you have secured a job through fraudulent means, your employment may be terminated when the employer uncovers the dishonesty.
  3. Legal Consequences: Fraudulent activities can have legal implications. Forgery and misrepresentation are serious offenses and can lead to legal actions being taken against you.
  4. Damage to Reputation: Your reputation, both academically and professionally, can be seriously damaged if you are found to have engaged in dishonest practices. This can have long-term consequences on your career.

You Can Retake Exams to Make Up for Deficiencies

If you haven't sat for any exam to secure your own result, it's time to do that. Instead of engaging in using another's result, you can enroll in any secondary school and make your WAEC or NECO result for any future openings.

For those who don't want to enroll in schools, you can take advantage of external exams such as WAEC GCE, NECO GCE, or NABTEB GCE, which do not require attending schools. With extra lessons and reading, you can participate in such exams and obtain your own results.

If you've already sat for an SSCE but didn't pass some required subjects, you can retake them by enrolling or taking GCE to make up for those deficiencies. Fortunately, you can combine results for most jobs and admissions if you already have one result at hand.


In navigating admissions or job applications, integrity stands as a cornerstone. Utilizing another person's results for personal gain violates ethical standards and carries substantial repercussions. The gravity of such actions spans beyond mere disqualification; it tarnishes credibility, jeopardizes opportunities, and can lead to legal consequences. Institutions and employers expect authenticity in every application, demanding candidates to present their genuine achievements and qualifications. 

Therefore, the route to success lies in personal diligence—retaking exams, seeking additional educational avenues, or exploring alternatives—to rectify deficiencies rather than resorting to deceitful means. Upholding honesty not only upholds personal integrity but also safeguards one's reputation, ensuring fair consideration and fostering trust within academic and professional spheres. The road to attainment, though challenging, must be traversed with ethical resolve, as integrity paves the way for a credible and sustainable future.
