WAEC Results 2017 Released 60 Days After Exam.
The authorities at the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) office has kept to their promise of releasing the results of this year’s West African Senior School Certificates Examination (WASSCE) in 60 days.
Following the conclusion of the o’level examination for 2017 May / June school candidates on Monday, 15th May, the result was subsequently released on Monday, 17th July, 2017, just over sixty days later.
Reacting to this development, the Head of WAEC Nigeria National Office (HNO), Mr. Olu Adenipekun, said that it is one of the steps being taken by the council to meet its mandates of delivering quality service to all stakeholders.
He said that all hands at the office was on deck to ensure that the innovation, tagged: ‘Project 60’, was effective this year.
“For sometimes now, we normally use about 90 days, from the day of the last paper of the examination to release the result but since I assumed office as the HNO in Nigeria, we have been working to reduce that ‘waiting period’ by 50 per cent.

The official urged candidates to be patient with the WAEC result checking portal as the management is working round the clock to get the website running at full capacity to reduce the stress on candidates trying to check their results.
