Airtel Money, WAEC enable candidates to check their results online
Airtel Money is enabling the purchase of the West African Examination
Council (WAEC) results checker pins on its platform. The company
announced that the service has been made possible through a
partnership with the WAEC.
This service which, is available only on Airtel Money, will enable
candidates purchase pins via the short code *587*10# to check the
recently released West African Senior Secondary Certificate
Examination results online anywhere across the country.
Airtel Ghana’s innovation will ease up the pressure on WAEC offices
across the country and make it possible for candidates to check their
results in the comfort of their homes.
The Results Checker service uses the Unstructured Supplementary
Service Data system (USSD) enabled by the short code *587*10#. This
means the service is available to everyone on the Airtel Money service,
no matter the type of phone being used.
Edmund Bawuah, Head of Corporate M-Commerce at Airtel Ghana
said, “Our strategic tie-up with WAEC brings on an innovation which,
gives all candidates the benefit of making secure purchases as well as
online payments through their Airtel Money wallets – the most
innovative, secured and convenient mobile money platform in Ghana.
The results checker service ensures that candidates now spend few
minutes to secure a pin on their phones and use this pin to access
their results from the WAEC Portal on the internet. This saves them
the time and money they would otherwise have spent in traveling to
make physical payments at designated sales and payment points.”
Airtel Money and WAEC also provide other online services for which
WAEC candidates can pay with Airtel Money such as Request for
certificate, Attestation and Verification of Results.
Airtel Money is Ghana’s innovative, safe and secure mobile wallet that
provides a complete suite of services like money transfer, bill payments
and recharge on the move from a mobile device.
