    Re: Hi there,

    "Awaiting" means "waiting for" so using "awaiting" and "for" together is tautologous. Effectively, you are saying "waiting for for".

    I am waiting for results.
    I am awaiting results.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Hi there,

    Welcome to the forum, Nishani.

    Please give your future threads more helpful titles. 'Hi there' tells us nothing about your question. Waitng/awaiting for? would have been good for this one.
