The PIN stands for Personal Identification Number. In WAECDIRECT, it is a unique 10-digit or 12-digit number
that is required to access the service. The service enables direct access to a candidate's
results via multiple channels. The PIN is found on a valid WAECDIRECT Scratch card and is
revealed when cover patch on the reverse side of the card is carefully scratched off.
A Scratch card is a plastic card with a scratch patch on the reverse side that conceals a PIN required
to access the WAECDIRECT service. The Scratch card applicable for the WAECDIRECT service is marked
"WAECDIRECT ……Access Card" on the face.

You may check your results
up to a maximum of 5 (five) times with the use of 1 (one) Scratch
card. In order to check further after exhausting the allowed 5 (five)
times you will need to purchase another Scratch card which will entitle
you to another 5 (five) result checks.
No! You may only use one Scratch card to check one result. To check another result of interest,
you will require a new Scratch card. If you misuse a Scratch card by attempting to check another result
different from the first one checked, you will be penalised as having used the card, and will be presented
with the appropriate error message.
