The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said it would release the 2019 May/June West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) result on Friday.
This was made known in a statement signed by the spokesperson of the board, Demianus Ojijeogu, and released on the council's official Twitter page on Thursday, @waecnigeria.
"This is to inform candidates and the general public that the results of the WASSCE for School Candidates, 2019 in Nigeria will be released by the Council within the next 24hours," the official said.
The council also said candidates who are not indebted to the council will be able to access and check their results online, using the results checker pin on their smart identity cards used during the conduct of the examination.
However, some of the candidates who spoke with PREMIUM TIMES in the early hours of Friday confirmed that the 2019 May/June results have been released.
"I just checked my result now and I passed Mathematics and English language," one of the candidates said.
The candidates pleaded that their names should not be mentioned until their parents give approval but they showed the reporter a screenshot of their results.
Over 1.6 million candidates in SS3 sat for the May/June 2019 WASSCE in Nigeria.
The released results will end months of anxiety by candidates who require it for the 2019/2020 admission exercise in tertiary institutions.
