Here’s my take on The Meaning of Held, Withheld, Outstanding and Others On WAEC Result from the infographic:

MEANING OF WITHHELD WAEC RESULT

Possibility of release: Slim

This occurs when almost all the candidates in a particular centre had the same grade. WAEC will further
investigate the result. If truly the candidates engaged in any form of malpractice during the exam, such results would be seized and not released.
But if reverse is the case, they would be released.

MEANING OF HELD WAEC RESULT

Possibility of release: Slim

Almost the same thing with withheld. Held result mostly occur when a written remark is made on a candidate answer booklet relating to malpractice and other examination offences.

MEANING OF OUTSTANDING IN WAEC RESULT

Possibility of release: High

Outstanding in some subject(s) mostly occur when a student is recorded as present in exams, but the mark on the subject(s) are not concluded. It can also be caused by extra answer sheet. i.e. when not properly attached or some other factors.

MEANING OF ‘NO RESULT FOR THIS CANDIDATE IN THE SPECIFIED YEAR‘ IN WAEC RESULT

Possibility of release: Medium

This often happened to candidates that registered with special centres.

If you are not guilty of any examination offences and your result shows any of the tags stated above, there is a high possibility of release.

Conclusively, if you/your centre engaged in examination malpractice, don’t fool yourself, WAEC might have caught you. All hope is not lost yet.
