waec result withheld

Here is how to check waec withheld result, held or outstanding result for 2020.

It is no longer news that the West African examination council (Waec) has finally released the 2020 Waec result.

This article is about Waec withheld result 2020.

The exam which started in april and lasted till may, was recorded as successful across Nigeria.

was your result with held? or was some of your subject outstanding?

read below.


We Noticed that the board had with held a lot of candidates (180,205 total candidates) result and left many with outstanding.

The board had announced this through its twitter handle that candidates who were culpable of malpractices will be punished by having their result cancelled.

But such candidates result are being with held by the board before being cancelled.

candidates whose result is outstanding has a better chance of getting their result soon without its being cancelled.

read below on how to check your outstanding result.


The fact that your result is being withheld by the board does not mean it will be cancelled, those result are just undergoing further screening.

but if you were involved in the following acts listed below, then consider your result likely to be CANCELLED by the board after it might have undergone screening.

candidates whose result are outstanding and are not involved in malpractice,their result were not released due to some issues like; not submitting an answer booklet, not marking attendance, not writing down your name on answer booklet and many more reasons.

1. IMPERSONATION : This is a highly punishable offence. The board has zero tolerance for candidates who involve themselves in impersonation.

impersonation is the act of paying somebody else money to write the exam for you.

How the board will find out is not the issue, but the board would track such candidates who impersonates.

Remember that WAEC officials are being sent to the school to monitor the examination process.

2.BAD REPORT FROM INVIGILATORS : If an invigilator gives a bad report about you at their office consider that particular subject CANCELLED.

That is why its advisable that in the process of writing the examination you should respect all external invigilators.

Once an invigilator gets angry and collects your registration number for an offence,then consider your result likely to be cancelled.

3.CAUGHT WITH ILLEGAL MATERIALS: Candidates are always warned not to bring illegal materials like phones, textbooks etc to the exam hall.

if you were caught with such materials in the exam hall and your result is being with held,it will require a lot before it can be released.

scroll down to see what to do.

4. LACK OF COORDINATION DURING THE EXAM : This is mostly caused by the school authority.

Some schools fail to coordinate themselves and the student during the examination.

Example is when the school fails to provide enough materials for practicals during the exam.

This always causes a state of unrest during the exam,thereby giving room for examination malpractice, once an invigilator notices this, he/she writes down the name of the school and report them at his office.

5. COPYING : Copying also known as expo is a serious offence.

copying normally is not supposed to make a candidates result to be cancelled.

But then some candidates make serious mistake of copying from google, their textbook and  copying word for word from their seat mate.

For every question set by the board,they have the answers on google with them.

so when you go ahead and copy answers from google, the board will find out and that means you took phone into the hall.

Even when you copy from your friends,you are not expected to copy word for word.

But then the deed has been done, is there a solution?.

candidates whose result is outstanding should not panic but keep praying,i advise them to visit waec offices with their school principal to resolve such issues, nevertheless all outstanding result should be released before the nec meeting in november.

Hopefully before mid september all outstanding result would have being released, but you do not sit at home and expect the board to release your result especially if you were NOT involved in malpractices.

HERE is what to do?


1. If you were not involved in the acts listed above then keep praying, your waec withheld result is just being scrutinized.

2. If you were involved in any of the acts listed above, then you are advised to visit waec offices with your school principal and parents.
if you sit at home and just keep hoping, your result will LIKELY be CANCELLED.

Even when you visit waec office with your parents and principal, do not expect the result anytime soon.
waec wont release any result until its NEC meeting coming up soon

3. Above all, pray.


The board will release such result, after its NEC meeting.

you may ask,when is the nec meeting coming up?.

I actually do not know.

In 2017 the NEC meeting came up in November and in 2018 it was held in october, so just expect your result after the NEC meeting.

but outstanding result can be released at anytime, depending on the step taken by such candidates.

I wish all those who sat for this year waec and their result is being with held or outstanding.

I hope the board does not cancel any major subject if the candidate is found to have committed malpractice.
