When Is Neco Starting 2024?

Without NECO, there is no proof that a student attended secondary school; in actuality, NECO serves as the S.I. unit for passing out of secondary school. Without your NECO results, no Nigerian university would consider you for admission. 

The Senior Secondary Certificate Examination and the General Certificate in Education are administered by the National Examinations Council, an examination body in Nigeria, in the months of June/July and November/December, respectively. 

It ensures that academic or fundamental knowledge about potential applicants for employment and admission to academic institutions is instantly authenticated. The goal of NECO is to organize and conduct credible, national exams that are standard. Neco believes that through quality assessment, the prospective of the Nigerian child can be redefined.

The examination schedule for the 2024 National Examinations Council (NECO) June/July Senior School Certificate Examination (INTERNAL) has not yet been released, but the organization has recently notified all of the candidates who are preparing for it that it would take a longer time.

This exam is what candidates take in their final year of secondary schooling. There are two categories in the SSCE. The first is known as SSCE Internal and is open to candidates in their third and final year of senior secondary education; the second is known as SSCE External and is open to candidates who are not enrolled in the school system, or private candidates.


Since the National Examinations Council has not yet informed us, educators and students must stay up-to-date on official announcements from the Neco website. Regardless of the precise date, preparation and planning are essential for success in these exams because they allow ample time for you to get ready.
