Penalties for Late Collection of WAEC Certificate
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) charges a custody fee for each candidate whose certificate has been kept in their care for over four years.
The fee varies depending on how long the certificate has been kept, as shown in the table below:
|10 to 14
|15 to 19
|20 years and above
The custody fee is payable when you collect your certificate from WAEC.
If you do not collect your certificate within four years of it being issued, you will be charged a custody fee.
