    The school will then forward an application on your behalf to the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

    “Outstanding Result” simply means pending result. This means that there may be errors from the affected candidate either during registration or the examination that are being corrected. The results that fall in this category have a high chance of being released.

    “Withheld or held Results” on the other hand signifies that the affected candidate violated the rules & regulations guiding the conduct of the examination.
