Gatecrashers are welcomed nationwide.

WAEC coordination starts:

31st May, 2018 for Chief Examiners and Team leaders!
1st June, 2018 for Examiners and Asst. Examiners.
Coordination ends 3rd June, 2018
Time: 4:00pm

Gate crashers should go to the venue with their relevant certificates (both original and photocopies) and make sure attendances are taken for the 3 days.

Distribution of parcels begin on 5th June, 2018 to all existing examiners and the lucky gate crashers

A hint though from my experience as a gatecrasher, ATTENDANCE at coordination classes is NECESSARY for the 3 days. CONSISTENCY in the 3-day coordination meeting will secure you a chance.

Normally, parcels are issued to those who attend the coordination classes, but Chief and Team leaders can be funny, by keeping parcels for invited examiners who do not attend the 3 days coordination. So, “shine your eyes”.

Note that some marking venues “MAY” issue out parcels to examiners when they are done with the coordination for that day.

Documents for Examiners: They mark the scripts of students using a prepared marking guide Your First Degree/HND

Checkers: They cross check the marks awarded to the students and ensure they are properly totaled.

To apply as a checker, visit the venue on the day of coordination, address your letter to THE HEAD OF MARKING VENUE, (then add the name of the town). Submit the letter to the Secretarial staff i.e the secretary of the marking venue.

Checkers are usually invited for a test, Simple arithmetic. 15 minutes to answer 15 questions and also sum up some figures on the rows and columns.




2.5 + 3and1/2

Sq.root of 144 etc.


Go to any marking center close to you with the required credentials and attend the coordination session ina subject close to what you studied in school.

No body helps anyone here, I marked during my service year, in fact they were begging me to pick more packs and I refused because of the short time frame.

It is worthy to note that they pay per subject multiplied by the number of scripts given to you
e.g I think they pay N15 per script for Maths.

If you are given 600 scripts that will be N15*600= N9,000.00. coupled with other allowances such as coordination fee, transport, feeding etc. Marking fee varies per subject, you will get to know one applicable to your subject at the marking venue, but the least is N8 per script.

That’s not the only incentive, as there are others like Lump sum, coordination fee etc that will sum up your pay around 12,000 – 15000 if you have about 320 scripts.

You take scripts home for marking and submit progressively to your Team Leader for vetting and then to your subject script officer for checking.

By progressively, I mean that you don’t wait till you finish marking the entire scripts issued to you before submission. As you mark, you submit by center/school basis. A parcel usually consists of 2, 3, 4 or 5 schools/centers.
