The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, has cancelled manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates who sat the West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination from 1999 till date.
According to a statement by the council, the move is due to a recently innovated WAEC Digital Certificate Platform designed for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.
The statement added that efforts were underway to expand the platform to accommodate candidates from 1980 and updates would be provided to the public as they became available.
The statement partly reads; “The West African Examinations Council Nigeria is pleased to inform institutions, organisations, agencies, embassies, high commissions, and the general public that the Council will no longer provide manual confirmation or stamping of certificates of candidates who sat the WASSCE from 1999 till date, as the Council has launched the WAEC Digital Certificate Platform for a seamless and timely mode of availing stakeholders of their candidates’ certificates.”
It added that the WAEC Digital Certificate Platform could be accessed online through the WAEC website and the mobile version could be downloaded on the Android and IOS app stores.
