How to get a WAEC verification pin

The WAEC verification pin is a method used by organizations and institutions to validate information and certificates presented by Candidates.

Some Candidates engage in fraudulent activities like changing their date of birth and even their names. It is only with this digital verification that a candidate can attest to the genuineness of his/her documents.

Though a Candidate cannot change the date of birth already provisioned in his/her results, the WAEC result and verification pin can be used to change details in some other documents. If you had errors in your biodata during the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Online registration, you can correct those irregularities by presenting your WAEC results and verification pin.
