Why do WAEC Withheld Result

Possibility of release: Slim

This occurs when almost all the candidates in a particular school are answering the same questions using the same words and 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. WAEC result can also be held if a written remark is made on a candidate answer booklet relating to malpractice and other examination offences or a candidate was caught indulging in exam malpractice and a form was filled and sent to WAEC. The chances of releasing withheld result is very slim.
