A WU that is processed must first be uploaded meaning returning the final work it has done.

Afterwards the result must be returned. Returning a result means claiming your credit for the WU that has been processed. 3 returned results must first be compared. If these 3 results are matching, then the claimed credit is granted.

Have a look here to have a detailed explanation about credit.

At the end, it means 3 PC's must have returned their claimed credit and this can take maximum 14 days as the reported deadline of a WU is 14 days.

Greetings from Belgium.

One of the key components in granting credits is the verifier. There has been some trouble keeping it running smoothly (it is down again). The verifier takes the 3 returned results and determines if they are the same. Credit cannot be granted before the verifier makes this determination.
