If you are one of the students who sat for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) 2020, the good news is that on Monday the body released results for the 2020 West African Senior Secondary Schools Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
You can check your results with your phone, tablet or laptop, and you can do it online or offline.
Also note that some results are not completely released and some people’s results too are still withheld by WAEC.
We reported that the head of WAEC Nigeria, Patrick Areghan disclosed that results of 215,149 candidates who sat for the exam were withheld over alleged malpractice.
Are you among the 1,538,445 candidates who sat for this year’s WASSCE?
Follow these simple steps below to check your results online and offline.
How to check results online
- Visit www.waecdirect.org which is WAEC’s result checking portal

Input the serial number on the smart identity card that was given to you during the exam
Enter the card pin

How to check results offline
If you’re going for this option, all you need is a phone. You are simply required to send a message in this format — WAECExam NoPIN*Exam Year to 32327 and then expect your result.
As simple as these steps appear, you should endeavour to exercise enough patience while trying to check your result.
This is given the fact that network among other technical glitches could pose a serious challenge with many candidates trying to check their results almost, if not, at the same time.
