Airtel Money, Ghana’s most innovative mobile money service 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.
