The National Examination Council (NECO) is a board that runs yearly SSCE examinations in Nigeria. With your NECO results, you can get admitted into any Nigerian tertiary institution of your choice, although it is not internationally recognized like WAEC.
That said, it is worth noting that not all students know how to check their NECO results with their phones. If you wrote NECO this year or the previous years and would like to check your result with your phone, this article is precisely what you need.
In this comprehensive guide, we will walk you through the process of checking your NECO results with ease. Keep reading!
Are NECO Results Out?
Currently, the NECO results for 2023 are not out. This means you won’t be able to check your NECO result on the board’s portal if you wrote the NECO exam in 2023. Only those who sat in the previous years can access the portal.
Meanwhile, it is worth stating that the NECO results take only eight (8) weeks to be released after the last paper. That is roughly two months.
Hence, the last day of NECO exams determines when the results will be released.
What Are The Requirements For Checking NECO Results?
Before you think of checking your NECO results, you must ensure that the needed requirements are ready.
These requirements are the information and materials for obtaining your result on the NECO official portal. They are;
- Exam year
- Exam type
- Registration number
This is the exact year that you sat for the NECO examination. If you can not remember the exam year, you can either check your examination ID card or head to the center or school where you wrote the examination.
NECO is not only for Secondary School Certificate Examination. They also conduct Basic Education Certificate Examination and even National Common Entrance Examination. The SSCE can also be internal or external. However, in this case, you have to choose SSCE Internal.
Another necessary requirement is your registration number. This number is assigned to you upon successful registration for the NECO examination.
The last requirement on our list is the NECO token. Literally, one may think that the NECO token is a payment made. No, that is far from it. As we use scratch cards to check WAEC results, we also use them to check NECO results.
The only difference is that that of NECO is called TOKEN. You need to purchase this card before you proceed with checking your NECO results, and in addition, this token has a usage limit of five (5).
What Is The Cost Of Buying A Token?
The price of the token is N625. However, it is advisable to have at least N1,500 with you as the price may inflate or increase with different locations.
