The shortcode *944# to purchase result checker card to check any of the West African Examinations Council administered (WAEC) national and international examinations have been shut down, AcademicWeek.com can confirm.
In a discussion with an Editorial Staff of AcademicWeek.com, an official of the Council said he is not sure if the shortcode will be reactivated for students to purchase the 2022 WASSCE result checker card dialing *944#.
“The 2022 WASSCE results press release did not stated candidates can purchase the result checker via the *944#. so I am not sure they would be able to do that with the shortcode. The service is currently unavailable,” he said.
In a related development, the non-profit-making organization following the release of the 2022 WASSCE School results has issued a disclaimer indicating the results currently accessible only at https://ghana.waecdirect.org are provisional.
Explaining the disclaimer to AcademicWeek’s Editorial Staff in a discussion, an staff of WAEC said the released 2022 WASSCE results are accurate and not fake as claimed by some students and members of the general public.
“This year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination results hosted online at https://ghana.waecdirect.org are genuine and not fake and neither will be changed later as widely speculated,” the Council’s official said.
