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.
