The Management of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) introduced the *944# code for candidates and members of the general public to purchase a result checker pin for accessing the WASSCE result.
According to the council, candidates can also dial the code to check their result via SMS.
But unfortunately, the system has been busy since WAEC announce the release of the provisional results of the first batch of the free senior high school who sat for the 2020 edition of the WASSCE for School Candidates.
Comments from candidates indicate an amount of GHC 10.00 when dialled *944# and following the instructions to buy the results checker pin is being deducted from their Mobile money wallet but never receive the pin.
“This 944 is not helpful at all, after the deduction no message why, I need my money back please”, a candidate said in our comment box
“Bought Ghc10 on 15th Nov 2020 with 05492262** but Checker not received. You have to check your system if it is not intentional”, Johsua added.
The non-profit-making organization (WAEC), when reached out by Georgeweb.org on the issue, said it has noticed the problem and will in due course deliver all non delivered pins to affected candidates.
“All non delivered pins will be pushed to candidates”, it said.
The Examinations Council, therefore, urges all affected candidates and the general public to exercise patience as it works tirelessly to resolve the issue.
