I have seen many cases in which candidates give their pin and exam number to people to help them check their waec results using a phone.
We have given out this post to avoid unnecessary sharing of examination numbers. Checking your WASSCE result is simple.
You don’t need a phone to browse until you try it out. Were you wondering how? Don’t fret.
We will discuss all issues related to checking the result, but we may not include yours. Just use our comment box to ask anything you did not understand.
Is the 2023 waec result out?
If that question got you here, then the answer we sent you is yes. The West Africa Examination Council has released the results for 2023.

Reasons you should not reveal your 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 below points.
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.
Not only that, 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 result 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 you were prohibited by your parents from using phones; here are people you can call.
Mistakes made while checking results on the WAEC portal
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, which Is the year of the exam.
For instance, let’s take my examination number 46*****, and I did my exam in 2023. While checking my result, I selected 2020 as my year of exam.
Don’t be surprised it might show up another candidate’s result. When checking your result, always put the year into consideration.
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 are those who registered and sat in a private school for their exams.
Let me clarify that.
The West Africa Examination Council allows two main examinations, mostly 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 I check my WAEC results using my phone?
No limited time for checking your result. However, your pin can only be used five (5) times. In case it finishes you will have to buy another one to proceed.
Can I use one PIN to check more than one result?
You can’t. You are only permitted to use it for one result.
