WAEC shuts down service to request 2023 WASSCE results via SMS

WASSCE results

Senior High School students who sat for this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination for School will not be able to request their WASSCE results via SMS as the West African Examinations Council has shut that service.


The closure of the SMS result checker system comes after prospective candidates who sat for the 2021 edition of the WASSCE for School in Sierra Leone were unable to request their provisional WASSCE for School results via SMS.

The not-for-profit-making organization (WAEC) in a statement to the Sierra Leone Ministry of Education, said the SMS result checker system not only poses a security threat to the results but also violates their business agreement.

An official of the West African Examination Council in a discussion told Thisterm.com, the Service to request the WASSCE for School results via SMS is not down for only candidates in Sierra Leone but also their colleagues in Ghana.

“The Service to request WASSCE results via Short Message Service (SMS) by dialling the shortcode *944# is currently unavailable, candidates are to visit the WASSCE result portal to check their result,” the WAEC official told Thisterm.
