What candidates must know
Candidates should take notice of the following
1. When WAEC results are released, candidates will be required to purchase their scratch cards before they can access the result.
2. Candidates are not that not all WAEC results will be released at the same time. WAEC can decide to release the result in batches. So, if after checking yours, you couldn’t see the result, keep calm and check back later.
