By now, you must have checked your results in the just concluded West African Senior School Centre Examination (WASSCE). If you haven’t done so, click here to read this post that tells you how to check your WAEC result online.
While some had already seen their results after following the stated procedures, others have been receiving some sort of messages making them have some discomfort.
As common question is: What does it mean when I see ‘outstanding’ or ‘withheld’ on my WAEC result? Read further for the answer.
Meaning of ‘outstanding’ on WAEC results
Results are described as outstanding when there is an error on the part of the candidate in the process of registration or during the examination.
If such is your case, the errors may still be corrected and after which you would see your results. There is a likelihood of the results eventually being released.
Meaning of ‘withheld’ on WAEC results
A withheld result is being subjected to further scrutiny by the examination body.
It may or may not be released based on the final decision of the Council of WAEC.
Usually, candidates whose results were withheld have violated some rules and regulations related to the conduct of the exams. As a result, their results are withheld it is determined that they are either released or cancelled.
Such rules are contained in the guidelines against examination malpractices, which you must have read before the exam.
A result may have been withheld based on either the candidate’s fault or that of the entire examination centre. Whichever it is, only the Council, which meets towards the end of each year could determine whether or not the results are worth releasing.
