The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has announced plans to launch a Digital Certificate Platform.
When is the launch?
In a statement by the Council’s Acting Head, Public Affairs, Moyosola Adesina, on Friday, WAEC plans to launch the platform on Thursday, October 20, 2022. Adesina urged stakeholders and the public to take advantage of the Digital Certificate Platform, which was designed to eliminate the bureaucratic bottlenecks currently associated with the manual procedures of certificate issuance and collection.
How’s it going to impact things?
When launched, individuals, educational institutions, and organisations would be able to confirm the genuineness of any WAEC certificate on the digital platform. The platform can also help to recover burnt, lost, and damaged certificates. From the statement, the WAEC Digital Certificate Platform can be accessed online via www.waec.org and on its mobile application, which can be downloaded on android and iOS app stores.
“The benefits of this innovation are enormous, as candidates who have sat for the WASSCE in the past and present are able to access and share the original copies of their certificates with ease, the original copies of their certificates, which can be instantly confirmed from a credible and reliable source, regardless of the location”, Adesina said.
