The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria has made public its new modalities for the collection of attestation of results and printed certificates by candidates from the offices of the Council nationwide.
According to a terse press release signed by Demianus Ojijeogu, the Council’s spokesman of the Nigerian National Office, the new modalities for the collection of certificates apply to Private Candidates only.
This, according to Ojijeogu, is because School Candidates are expected to channel their requests through their schools.
However, the modalities for Requests for Attestation of Results shall apply to both Private and School Candidates.
The new modalities are a clear departure from what obtained in the past, where it was mandatory for private candidates to collect their certificates or Attestation of Results from the WAEC office in the state where they sat the examination.
With this new initiative, therefore, candidates can apply and collect their Certificates or Attestation of Results (both School and Private Candidates) from any WAEC office of their choice in Nigeria.
“Modalities for Collection of Attestation of Results and Certificates (Private Candidates) are as follows:
“For Attestation of Results, candidates are required to make their requests from any office of the Council and pay a non-refundable fee for the service;
“For the collection of certificates, candidates are to make their requests from any office of the Council and pay the prescribed fee;
“Candidates must state clearly the preferred office of collection of the printed Attestation of Result or Certificate and would be required to pay for courier service for delivery to the chosen location;
“Candidates’ contact details (Mobile Phone Number and E-mail Address) must be provided at the point of request.”; the release stated.
