Correction Of DOB And Name In WAEC Result – My Story
I got admitted into the university of Benin in the 2014/2015 session and my clearance wasn’t easy.
This was because of the errors in not only my date of birth, but also my middle name.
My date of birth was written as October 21st instead of October 22nd, while my middle name was spelt as Mijoyime instead of Mijioyime.
My clearance officer of course rejected the result as the details on the WAEC result wasn’t consistent with that on the JAMB and School.
Then of course, he gave me a correction form to fill.
In the form, I stated that errors on my WAEC result and then gave the correct details.
In about a week’s time, I received a letter from my clearance officer that I have been given 6 months to effect the changes or else…………………
The copy of the letter is below
Sorry i had to clean my year of birth (lol).
What else could that be?
Losing my hard earned admission? Definitely yes, if i don’t rectify it before the stipulated time.
Correction Of Name And DOB In WAEC Result – The Journey To WAEC Office
I immediately of course went to the WAEC office in Benin City because my WAEC exam was written in Edo state.
When I got there, the journey began.
I was told to go back to my school to collect some documents.
The school here was the secondary school I wrote my WAEC exam.
Most importantly, I was to collect two letters from the school; See them below;
- Attestation Letter
- Correction letter
In the attestation letter, the school was to confirm that I truly finished from the school.
This was not a problem
The correction letter was to state the errors found in the WAEC result.
Although in this case, I was to admit that I made those errors and not them.
This means that if you don’t admit you made those errors, you will not be attended to.
So of course, I had to.
See the letter below.
Although, in my case, I combined my attestation letter and correction letter together.
Although they complained but after much pleading, they accepted.
The other documents which were requested are below;
This birth certificate has to be the original one.
They don’t accept affidavit for declaration of age.
Therefore, I had to go to a teaching hospital to make one.
Then I requested for it to be backdated .
What I mean there is that I told them to take the date it was done backward up to 1990’s.
It cost me close to another. N5000, but it was worth it.
Then I had to rumple and stain it to make it look like an old one.
