Speaking about the WAEC examinations, here is the official government website of the West African Examinations Council. This site is a portal for every secondary school student who registered for WAEC to check their result.
They are the first to post of any update concerning WAEC result, whether it is delayed or it is made available, you will know from this portal. This website however has another of its kind, called waceonline.org.ng, it is also an official Government website of WAEC.
While waecdirect.org is a result checking portal, the latter is a WAEC news site. All updates and news regarding WAEC Exams can be found there.
We would suggest getting your information from verified and official sources, it is not safe to trust a student’s WAEC credentials for instance to a stranger online.
This is an educational news website, trusted by many students and teachers alike. They provide relevant information and resources for secondary school students.
Their news stories are truly the latest, they release news updates in a timely manner and everything is connected to the educational sector. Students can use the website to check if exam timetables are made available, or if there is going to be school after a strike, etc.

Another impressive tutorial website, perhaps the most famous in Nigeria even. Tuteria has served many parents and students by connecting the parents with tutors.
The advantages a child gets from tutoring are numerous, they can improve in a short amount of time if they have a good teacher and if a child is having difficulties in a subject, a private tutor can help clear it out for them on a one-on-one teaching approach.
Tuteria will ask you to select a goal for the tutoring, the level or class of the child, your address, and then they pair the information with tutors who match the criteria of the searching parent.
