WASSCE 2021 to hold in August , September - WAEC

Here are some Frequent Asked Questions as regards to WAEC Results.  We got solutions to all your needs. You can also use the comment section to ask anyone not in the list.

What is an e-PIN?

The e-PIN stands for Electronic Personal Identification Number. In WAECDIRECT, it is a unique 10-digit or 12-digit number that is required to access the service. The service enables direct access to a candidate’s results via multiple channels. The e-PIN is found in a valid WAEC Voucher.

Where can I buy an e-PIN?

An Electronic PIN may be purchased at the National office of WAEC and at any of its Zonal and Branch Offices across Nigeria. From time to time it may become available at any other outlets so designated by WAEC. The reviewed price for the e-PIN is now N700.

How many times can I check my results?

You may check your result up to a maximum of 5 (five) times with the use of 1 (one) e-PIN. In order to check further after exhausting the allowed 5 (five) times, you will need to purchase another e-PIN which will entitle you to another 5 (five) result checks.

Can I use one e-PIN to check more than one result?

No! You may only use one e-PIN Voucher to check one result. To check another result of interest, you will require a new e-PIN Voucher. If you misuse a e-PIN Voucher by attempting to check another result different from the first one checked, you will be penalised as having used the e-PIN, and will be presented with the appropriate error message.

In what other ways can I check my results?

No. You may only use one e-PIN to check one result. To check another result of interest, you will require a new e-PIN. If you misuse an e-PIN by attempting to check another result different from the first one checked, you will be penalised as having used the e-PIN, and will be presented with the appropriate error message.
