When checking the grades, you’ve seen HELD, OUTSTANDING, or CANCEL shown in any of your subjects. It shows WAEC Withheld result.
Don’t worry; we will look closely at what the word means.
For the sake of those who haven’t or don’t know how to check their waec results, here is a guide.

- [UPDATED] WAEC Timetable Download
Once you have figured out that your result shows any of the abovementioned words, exit the browser.
Some may believe the internet connection causes the problem, and it reduces the number of times you can check the result with the pin provided while trying to recheck it.
There are explanations behind the HELD, OUTSTANDING, or CANCEL showing on your result, which you will find here.
Update: According to the council, the next WAEC 73rd NEC meeting will occur in March 2023. After the meeting, some results will be released.
Latest Update: Some of the results held by WAEC have been released; kindly check the official website for your result.
Why WAEC Withheld Your Result
Malpractice: This is the number one factor behind most of the seized results, but it may not be the reason behind yours.
The inspector may have found you cheating, and you were given a form to fill out. That is one of the reasons that has been involved.
Another fact is copying other people’s work also leads to this. Take, for example, the person sitting in front of you and someone else copying you during the exam.
Do you think the marker is a fool? Capital NO. You know within yourself if you involve in this act. No one needs to tell you that.
If your examination center was caught in this act, it shows you all will bear the consequences.
No matter what, put your mind at rest, and the result will be released, but the punishment will indeed be placed on such a candidate.
Impersonation: This has been the practice of some candidates. They no longer write exams themselves. Instead, they hire someone else to help them sit for the exam.
For those who are yet to write the exam reading this post, please don’t give your money to anyone to help you write your exam.
One of the reasons why some candidates impersonate is that they don’t have time. Applying for two things at a time is very risky.
For instance, you wrote jamb and chose to await the result during registration. While writing your waec, your institution fixed their screening date so that it will clash with your exam.
In this case, we advise you all to take things one after the other.
Other reasons why your result was held
Noise during the examination: Let me make this clear to you. If you notice while the exam is going on, you will be asked to provide your ID card for scanning, or you are asked to thumbprint.
During this process, the machine records all the sounds in the center. Making noise while the examination is ongoing might be counted as malpractice.
Form: You may have committed an offense during the examination and were given a form to fill out.
Don’t expect the result to be released immediately.
Will WAEC release the 2023 withheld results?
After thorough confirmation, the board will release the result.
If you are, found guilty, you will surely be punished.
Your result might either be Cancelled, Degraded or Good. Expect any of the three outcomes.
Meaning of Held, Outstanding, and Cancel in WAEC Results
Let us look at what each status means in your result.
HELD: This means your result has been seized for violating the instruction laid down by the board controlling the exam. Will waec held result be released?
As you can see above, all the results will be released after verification.
OUTSTANDING: Your result was probably held due to the wrong information provided on your script.
Such information includes your examination number, center number, name, etc.
Also, those with bad writing which did not write the details requested vividly will have their waec result displaying outstanding for that subject.
For those intending to write waec, please take a good note of this. Always cross-check very well before submitting. What is my chance?
Since you did not involve in malpractice, there is a high possibility of your result being released after verification.
CANCELED: Whenever canceled is displayed on your results, forget about it. Nothing can be done about that. Just make use of the advice I will be dropping below.
What should you do if your result is withheld?
1. Pray: There is nothing impossible for God to do. Seek forgiveness of sin and his mercy. Don’t forget to have faith and be hopeful after telling him.
2. Complain to your school principal: Let them know your waec result was withheld. They might provide you with a possible solution.
3. Purchase another form: You’ve known that the output of the result after being seized might be positive or negative.
One truth is before the result is released, another registration form will be out.
Getting the registration fee might be tricky but set your mind on where you are going.
Please take it as a challenge, and don’t let it weigh you down. Keep on trying your best.
I bet you will later thank me if you follow my advice, and another bitter truth is if you obtained another form and you’ve already fill awaiting the result in JAMB or post utme, you will still meet up.
If peradventure the result was later discharged with good grades, it will still be an advantage for you to take note.
When will WAEC withheld Results 2023 be released
At first, the Nigeria Examinations Committee (NEC) will have to organize a meeting regarding the result and then look at the best judgment to be passed on to those involved in malpractice.
If you did not involve in malpractice, just put your mind to rest. Your result will soon be published.
“Based on my observation the west africa examination council always publish the held result alongside with the next result to be discharged”. For instance you wrote waec expect your result to be released with GCE.
I pray your result will be released without any failure. While waiting for waec to release the held result, please put your mind at rest.

Please, WAEC should stop punishing Nigerian children this way. I see no reason why these children results should be held when they were not found culpable during the exams either by filling malpractice form or by any information given by their supervisors who are the exams’ umpire. Please, WAEC I beg of u release our children results & fortify against ways against malpractice. That’s is d only appropriate justification you will give. Don’t punish our children while ur corrupt custodians, supervisors, syndicate remain rich. You know it all. Thanks
Has it been released up till today?

Any information in d house?
If the exam body must be fair to Nigerians, they should reprimand their staff members who invigilated, and allowed exam malpractice, these student were taught by the same person, so there is every likely hood that their expression will be similar. How do you justify that,there were malpractices when your supervisors didnt say so. I don’t think this waec board is serious.
Please and please release your weac we are waiting time is going pls and pls😭😰we are waiting
Please waec should do the grading again coz what was given to us is unexpected. These are not the outcome to what we did. Please do something about our results for us.🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Admin, please try to lay enquiries regarding the proposed date of the NEC meeting – thanks!
Please I beg in the name of God 🙏, you people should try your best but all I want is for that my result should be good.
I don’t want to sit again for another exam please release my result.
For over one month now the result of my son and that of some others in the same school is still showing held. There was no case of exam malpractice during the exam. Some students in the same center have their results released while others have their results held. What is the rationale. What is the offense of these students. I think WAEC want to deny people’s children of having admission. This will not be good. Some schools have given ultimatum to their candidates upload their O Level results.
WAEC, Please release the results of people’s children which you held. It is becoming too much.
– A concerned parent.
I need my result please,over one month it has be held please
God please I know I have sin against u please forgive me 😭 my weac result is held and I got 260 in postume exam my school has started giving admission please God help me and others u are also waiting for their result to be released God please touch their minds so they can release it Biko😭😭😭😭
