In this article, I have curated the processes that would enable you check your WAEC result easily and quickly.

 Here is the good news, if you are one of the students that had just taken the WAEC examination, all you need to check your WAEC result is the serial number present on the identity card that was given to you by your secondary school when you wanted to write the WAEC exam. Once you have this pin, then you are good to go.

How to Check Your WAEC Results With a Separately Purchased Checker

As was stated earlier, you are not specially required to buy a scratch card before you can check your WAEC result on your phone. The reason is that the WAEC body has given each candidate a PIN and serial number that conform. 

However, you might not be able to check your result with your PIN and serial number; this might be due to many factors or reasons. Some of them are;

– Maybe you sat for your WAEC examination before the year 1999.

– A situation where your ID card is missing, and you do not have a record of your details.

– You have your ID card but don’t find it possible to see your PIN and serial number, probably because the print is faded.

– Also, it might result from exceeding the specified number of checks allotted for your checker.

If you fall into any of the groups mentioned above, you must go to the WAEC request management system portal to buy your PIN online.
