This is what WAEC says about Exam Remarking, Outstanding and Withheld Results.

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has clarified issues concerning remarking of answer scripts, Outstanding Result, and Withheld Result. WAEC made this known while responding to questions from concerned individuals on the recently released WAEC results.

According to WAEC, the first step
towards getting your exam or answer
script remarked (if you feel that you
were scored below what you should
have scored) is to notify the school
where you took the examination. The
school will then forward an application on your behalf to the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

This application must be received 60 days after the release of the results and will attract a tee.

The council further explained what it
means to have an “Outstanding Result” or With Held Result”.

From the explanation, “Outstanding
Result simply means pending results.
This implies that there may be errors
from the affected candidate either
during registration or during 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. The fate of the results
that fall in this category will be decidedduring the National Executive Council meeting that will be held later in the year.
