You can use your WAEC as a substitute for IELTS to study in the UK. The universities that accept WAEC can be found on our website.
Also, if you are applying for an undergraduate degree in the UK, the WAEC qualification is generally recognised as equivalent to a GCSE, which is a requirement to get admission to an international foundation course or A-Levels.

Hope they can accept two sitting or Neco result

Two sittings might be acceptable, but note the following:
1. They will usually check that your names are exactly the same on each certificate. If it isn’t e.g., because of marriage, then you will need to also submit your marriage certificate/affidavit as evidence of name change.
2. Also, the universities that accept two WAEC/NECO certificates will most likely expect both qualifications to have been awarded in the same year or the year after. If both dates of the certificates are too far apart e.g., 2011 and 2021, the oldest one may be rejected.
Nonetheless, you should check with the university you are applying to whether they will accept two certificates from different sittings and under what conditions they will be accepted.

The universities that accept WAEC and NECO results will also accept a ‘C’ credit in English.
If you are using an older WAEC qualification, reach out to the university whether they will accept it.
Also, you can apply to ECTTIS to check whether your WAEC is comparable to the UK GCSE qualification. However, it costs a small fee to do this comparison. Visit the ECTTIS website if you are interested in ‘converting’ your WAEC to UK GCSE.
