Airtel Money's strategic cooperation with WAEC, the body that conducts the Senior School Certificate Examination in West African countries and Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in Ghana, would enable Ghanaian candidates to make payments using Airtel money from their mobile phones anywhere, anytime. They would be able to request for certificate printing, check results, attest and verify the results.

The partnership encourages innovation, which gives all candidates the benefit of making secure online payments through their mobile phones with instant feedback, which is characteristic of Airtel Money in more efficient and hassle-free manner. What this means is that candidates and other stakeholders are saved time and money they would hitherto have spent in making payment at designated payment points.
