He stressed that while ninety eight point zero four percent of the total candidates that sat the examination had their results fully processed and released, the results of two thousand one hundred and fifty three candidates representing one point nine six percent were still having their results being processed due to errors traceable to the candidates in the course of registration or writing the examination.
The WAEC boss in Nigeria however, noted that the issue of examination malpractice was well controlled during the examination as WAEC officials were on ground at every examination venue to ensure that there were no collision between invigilators and candidates to bring in illegal materials like cell phones into the examination hall for the purpose of cheating.
Mr. Adenipekun announced that candidates could access their result online as it had been published twenty four hours ago.
He explained that the result was published before the official announcement because it had already been electronically programmed by WAEC to be released by midnight of Monday 19th November, 2018 so as to enable the council to announce the release of the result officially on Tuesday, 20th November.
Mr. Adenipekun however, noted that the schedule date for the announcement of the result was changed due to the public holiday observed across the country yesterday in observance of Eid-Il-Malud.
