Candidates’ll obtain certificates online soon – WAEC

The West African Examinations Council has said that it has established an Electronic Certificate Management System, which is an online portal where candidates can request for their certificates.

The council added that the portal was meant for private candidates sitting for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination from September through November.

The WAEC Nigeria National Committee Chairman, Mrs Binta Abdulkadri, stated this in Abuja on Thursday at the 57th Annual Meeting of the council and presentation of awards to best performing candidates and schools.

Abdulkadri noted that WAEC had also deployed a “Quick Response Code on its certificates, thereby making it impossible to falsify certificates issued by the council.”

She said, “The Nigeria National Office, in particular, has taken advantage of Information and Communication Technology to improve its service delivery.

“This development has enabled the council in Nigeria to achieve total migration from paper-based to electronic enrolment of candidates for its examinations. The adoption of Advanced Printing Technology and deployment of a new technological solution, Item Differential Profile, are some of the innovations adopted by the council to tackle the menace of examination malpractice.

“The Council in Nigeria has also perfected its Electronic Certificate Management System, an online portal being deployed to enable qualified candidates in the WASSCE for private candidates request for their certificates online via a dedicated platform.”

The WAEC Head of Nigeria National Office, Mr Olu Adenipekun, said the annual meeting was to enable members to effect positive changes in the education sector of the country.

The WASSCE first award went to Oluwaseunara Arotiba, from Kogi State, who finished with eight distinctions and attended Nigerian Air Force Secondary School, Ikeja, Lagos State.

Arotiba told journalists that his parents were his greatest motivation, noting that he would continue to strive harder in his studies.
