Using a Cyber CAFE

Whether you are computer literate or not, cyber café is there to provide this service for you together with printing. If you can operate the computer, visit the café that offers internet service and tell them you want to buy time.

This time depends on the minutes or hours you need to check your West African Examination Council result. If there is a good network connection, that should not take up to 10 minutes.

If you are to buy time, you can get 30 minutes. Once you finish checking it, you can use the remaining time to do something else on the internet or keep reading well-prepared educational content on our blog, such as past questions, school news, tutorials, etc.

To those who don’t know about computers, walk up to the receptionist there, you want to check your waec result. Provide her with your examination number, pin, serial number, and exam year.

Never reveal your Checker PIN & exam number

Not everyone you see deserves to be optimistic. Some scammers have no job other than scamming their fellow human beings. Consider the points below.

The pin may be given to another candidate:

Some waec result checkers, you believe, are just scratch card dealers. If you immediately give them your pin and serial number, they’ll sell it to another user; then they’ll tell you somebody’s already using the pin you’ve given them, not knowing they’re the one.

Also, the person you gave could be a candidate who needs this pin to check his/her own. Instead of buying, he/she might use yours.

Your result will be publicly shared:

Some tag the exam upgraders themselves. They can share your results publicly as proof of their upgrade, which is not.

Come to think of it, if an examiner sees the post. He might think you did a waec upgrade, and he might reduce your grades, whereas you did nothing of such.

We hope you get the message we’ve transmitted. Please don’t be the victim. Perhaps your parents prohibited you from using phones; here are people you can call.

Problems checking your WAEC result

1. Choosing the wrong year: immediately, some click on the submit button, and it displays another candidate’s result to them. Here is the cause.

Two candidates might share the same examination, but there will surely be differences in the exam year. For instance, let’s take my examination number 46*****, which I did in 2024. While checking my result, I selected 2022 as my year of exam.

Don’t be surprised; it might show up another candidate’s result. When checking your results, always consider the year.

See: How to upgrade your waec result.

2. Exam type: you will see a drop-down menu on the portal to select the exam you sat for. Because of the name used to tag it, many can’t differentiate.

We have both school candidates and private candidates in the option. Some might say school candidates are those who did theirs in a government school. Likewise, private candidates registered and sat in a private school for their exams.

The West Africa Examination Council allows two main examinations, WAEC and GCE. Those who have registered for WAEC May/June have been recognized as a candidate for school, and those who have participated in GCE are known to be private candidates.

Please note that to avoid complaints about your result.

How many times can you use WAEC scratch card?

It is important to note that the pin used to access your results has a limit of five (5) uses. Once you have exhausted the five uses, you must purchase another pin to continue checking your results.

This ensures the security of your results and protects them from unauthorized access. It is advisable to keep track of the number of times you have used your PIN to avoid any inconvenience when checking your results.
