NOTE: The released results are for Ghana Students only, some months earlier we made a publication about Nigeria’s released WASSCE Results, this was because Ghana’s date was pushed ahead of time due to a lot of factors.

According to WAEC, the results of 8,486 candidates who failed to return learning support materials provided to them and/or destroyed school property cannot be accessed online at the Council’s website due to a request from the Ghana Education Service (GES). Adding that Candidates who are affected should go to their schools to get their results.

  • The Subject Results of 3,845 candidates have been cancelled for sending foreign material into the examination hall.
