    What does it mean when WAEC held/witheld results?
    What does it mean to have outstanding in some subjects in
    WAEC result?
    What does it mean to be replied by WAEC server with ‘No
    Result For This Candidate in the specified year‘?
    Some candidates were shown one of the tags above in the
    course of checking their WAEC Result Online. We have
    decided to define these terms, so that candidates will be
    able to know where they fall in and the probability of getting
    their results released.

    MEANING OF WITHHELD WAEC RESULT
    Possibility of release: Slim
    This occurs when almost all the candidates in a particular
    centre had same grade. WAEC will further investigate the
    result. If truly the candidates engaged in any form of
    malpractice during the exam, such results would be seized
    and not released. But if reverse is the case, they would be
    released.

    MEANING OF HELD WAEC RESULT
    Possibility of release: Slim
    Almost the same thing with withheld. Held result mostly
    occur when a written remark is made on a candidate answer
    booklet relating to malpractice and other examination
    offences.

    MEANING OF OUTSTANDING IN WAEC RESULT
    Possibility of release: Medium
    Outstanding in some subject(s) mostly occur when a student
    is recorded as present in exams, but the mark on the subject
    (s) are not concluded. It can also be cause by extra answer
    sheet. i.e. when not properly attached or some other factors.

    MEANING OF ‘NO RESULT FOR THIS CANDIDATE IN THE
    SPECIFIED YEAR‘ IN WAEC RESULT

    Possibility of release: Slim
    This often happened to candidates that registered with
    special centres.
    If you are not guilty of any examination offences and your
    result shows any of the tags stated above, there is high
    possibility of release.
