How can I retrieve my WAEC certificate?

“@waecnigeria I wrote my waec 2005 and now the certificate is lost need to get the attestation of result. What’s the procedure and how long does it take?” a former candidate of the WAEC asked on Twitter a few days ago.

And the examination body was quick to reply with the requirements to get back a lost WAEC result.

The good news:

WAEC now give attestation of result that looks like WAEC certificate and it’s still original. Something like the photo below.

However, “the difference is in the name and the passport will be a recent one you’ll submit during the process of getting it,” Sisi Nene who had a similar experience tweeted.
