Meaning Of Held, Withheld, Outstanding In WAEC Results


WAEC RESULT

At times, these random questions about WAEC result ensue and get candidates confused:
* What does it mean when WAEC held/witheld results?
* What does it mean to have outstanding in some subjects in WAEC result?
* What does it mean to be replied by WAEC server with ‘No Result For This Candidate in the specified year‘?

Some candidates were shown one of the tags above in the course of checking their WAEC Result Online.
We have decided to explain these terms, so that candidates will be able to know where they fall in and the probability of getting their results released.

MEANING OF WITHHELD IN WAEC RESULT
* Possibility of release: Slim
This occurs when almost all the candidates in a particular centre 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.

MEANING OF HELD IN WAEC RESULT
* Possibility of release: Slim
Almost the same thing with withheld. Held result mostly occur when a written remark is made on a candidate’s answer booklet relating to malpractice and other examination offences.

MEANING OF OUTSTANDING IN WAEC RESULT
* Possibility of release: Medium
Outstanding in some subject(s) mostly occur when a student is recorded as present in exams, but the mark on the subject(s) are not concluded. It can also be cause by extra answer sheet. i.e. when not properly attached or some other factors.

MEANING OF ‘NO RESULT FOR THIS CANDIDATE IN THE SPECIFIED YEAR‘ IN WAEC RESULT
* Possibility of release: Slim
This often happened to candidates that registered with special centres.

If you are not guilty of any examination offences and your result shows any of the tags stated above, there is high possibility of release.
