WAEC Result Release Date For May/June?

Image Source: Vecteezy

Normally WAEC results are marked and released forty five (45) days after the Exam last paper, which for this Year is Tuesday June 28th, 2022

WAEC unlike JAMB which takes few days to be released, takes a longer time for the results to be released, like I mentioned, it takes about 45 days for WAEC results ot be released

The reason for this is, WAEC is still a paper based test (PBT) and not CBT (Computer based test), if WAEC was a CBT exam, it would definitely have taken a shorter time to mark, grade and collate the result.

After each exam has ended all the centers that participated in the Exam will have to submit their scripts, brief the board, before marking of scripts can begin, these whole process takes time, which explains the reason it takes 45 days to complete.

So, If the last paper for WAEC is to be written on Tuesday June 28th, 2022, then adding 45 days to this date would be 12th of August 2022.


Results for 2022/2023 May/June WAEC was released 9th of August 2022, which is few days short the 45days as expected.

My guess is, since 12th of August is a Friday, the result will most likely be released 15th of August 2022 which is Monday the next week.

We can then say that, WAEC result for School candidates will be released on or before Monday, 15th of August 2022.

When Will WAEC Start Marking?

Marking of scripts for students who participated in the 2022 West Africa Examination council Exam has officially commenced, this started on the 12th of July, 2022 and carried out in the 85 marking venues that is spread across the country.
