Looking for ways to check BECE Results? You’re in the right place. WAEC is set to release the 2022 BECE results on January 19th, 2023. You can dial *800*055# to get a BECE Results Checker and know if the results have been released.

Check BECE Results

Many students and guardians are asking themselves this question, but the answer is not yet clear.

The Ministry of Education has previously stated that the results of the BECE 2022 were written on October 2022 and will be released by January 2023, but so far, no further information on this topic has been released.

In this article, we are going to talk about when the 2022 BECE results will be released and some other tips.

Per WAEC rules, BECE results are released 90 days after the last paper. In this case, the 2022 BECE ended on 21st October 2022 so, WAEC is set to release the 2022 BECE results on January 19th, 2023. WAEC will release a statement a few days before the results are released or immediately after the results come out.

WAEC works from Monday to Friday which omits weekends so if they are to omit weekends from the 90 days as well as the Christmas holidays, then it means it can go further than January 19th.

But given that the time for SHS 1 students to go to school has come out, it is very likely WAEC will stick to the 90-day convention.

So, therefore, what candidates and guardians have to do is wait patiently for a released statement from WAEC on when exactly they will want to release the results.
