The West African Examination Council WAEC has announced the launch of a digital platform for confirmation of results.
This implies that the examination body will no longer engage in manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates for those who sat for the exam from 1999 till date.
The Head of Public Affairs Department, Moyosola Adesina made the disclosure in a press release on Sunday stating the authenticity of accessing candidate results through the digital platform.
The council said the initiative was to enable candidates access their lost or damaged certificates online.
WAEC also disclosed that individuals and institutions seeking to confirm their results within the stipulated period can now do so via its digital portal by which plans are underway to extend the initiative to 1980.
The statement is read in parts “WAEC Nigeria is pleased to inform institutions, organisations, agencies, embassies, high commissions, and the general public that the Council will no longer provide manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates who sat the WASSCE from 1999 till date, as the council has launched the WAEC digital certificate Platform for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.
