Definition Of WAEC Terms – Held, Withheld, Outstanding e.t.c

At times, these random questions about WAEC terms ensue and get candidates confused :

What does it mean when WAEC held/witheld results?
What does it mean to have outstanding in some subjects in WAEC result?
What does it mean to be replied by WAEC server with ‘No Result For This Candidate in the specified year‘?

Some candidates were shown one of the tags above in the course of checking their WAEC Result Online. We have decided to define these terms, so that candidates will be able to know where they fall in and the probability of getting their results released.

MEANING OF WITHHELD WAEC RESULT
Possibility of release: Slim

This occurs when almost all the candidates in a particular centre had same grade. WAEC will further investigate the result. If truly the candidates engaged in any form of malpractice during the exam, such results would be seized and not released. But if reverse is the case, they would be released.
