Answers to your questions on NABTEB.

Are you confused about NABTEB? Do you want to be cleared of some doubts before you obtain the form? Do you wish to know everything possible about it before you can be sure if NABTEB is for you? Then, you must read the list of 13 answers to the questions every student is asking.

1. What is NABTEB?

The full meaning of NABTEB is National Business and Technical Examinations Board just like WAEC is West African Examinations Council and NECO is National Examination Council.

The Board was established in 1992 to domesticate craft level examinations which were hitherto conducted by City & Guilds, Pittman’s, and Royal Society of Arts all of UK in accordance with the provisions of the National Policy on Education.

2. What is the NABTEB website?

NABTEB has different dedicated websites for her activities. To check NABTEB results, you use this link https://eworld.nabtebnigeria.org/ or See step by step guide to check your NABTEB result.

To have access to all other information about the body, use this link http://nabtebnigeria.org

3. What is the difference between NABTEB and WAEC/NECO?

Briefly, WAEC is meant for academic pursuit only. By this, it means, you write WAEC in order to use the result for admission purpose.

Even though they ask for it when you’re seeking jobs in the future time, WAEC result is not primarily used to give you employment.

Whereas, NABTEB are for both admission use and job purpose. This is because it's more technical base than theory. The NABTEB type for professional and job purpose is called NABTEB Advanced or A'level NABTEB.

I discussed more about this Advanced courses in the post, "IJMB, JUPEB and Cambridge A’level: Opportunity to Gain Admission directly to 200 Level."

In other words, a particular type of NABTEB certificate/result (NABTEB May/June and Nov/Dec) is meant for admission purpose and the other types (Advanced) are mainly for job purposes.

For better understanding, read the question and answer below.

4. What are the types of exams conducted by the body?

The four major examinations conducted by NABTEB are:
  • May/June NBC/NTC Examinations
  • November/December NBC/NTC & ANBC/ANTC Examinations
  • Modular Trades Certificate Examinations (MTCE)
  • National Common Entrance Examinations.

5. So, what are the differences among these exams?

  1. NBC means National Business Certificate.
  2. NTC means National Technical Certificate.
  3. ANBC means Advanced National Business Certificate.
  4. ANTC means Advanced National Technical Certificate.

6. What is the Advanced NABTEB?

The NABTEB Advanced Level Programme is a National examination equivalent to IJMB, JUPEB and CAMBRIDGE.

When you complete the course (examinations including ANBC and ANTC), you will be allowed to obtain JAMB direct entry form and be given admission to 200 level of your proposed course in any school accepting it.

7. How can I obtain NABTEB ordinary level exams and its Advanced Level exams?

There are several NABTEB exams centres around the country where you can write May/June or November/December NBC/NTC Certificate Examinations.

Visit such centers for details of the registrations. The Ordinary Level NABTEB can be obtained at several vocational centres and continuous education institutes around the country or some affiliated secondary schools around you. You can also see the list of federal government colleges that conduct NABTEB exams.

But for NABTEB Advanced Level, a few centres are saddled with the conduct of the exams. You can check this page for more details and enquiry.

You can also contact NABTEB headquarters for further clarification through:
Phone Number: +2348078840770
Email Address 1: nabtebhelpdesk@yahoo.com
Email Address 2: helpdesk@nabtebnigeria.org.

8. What is P7 or P8 in NABTEB result?

Just like D7 and D8 in WAEC and NECO, P7 and P8 are the equivalents.

If you’re filling a (admission) form that doesn’t show P7 and P8 options, you should take D7 and D8 respectively instead.

9. Are all institutions/schools accepting this result?


It actually depends on your proposed course. Some courses like medicine, nursing, pharmacy etc may not consider it because those courses are practical based rather than theoretical.

You will need to confirm from your proposed school's admission office to know what course they accept NABTEB for.

All schools must accept NABTEB for their courses apart from those that require your practical knowledge from secondary schools.

A different issue is when you want to apply for a school of nursing or related courses. NABTEB may not be accepted for these courses. I explained this further in the post, "School of Nursing, Health Tech and Hygiene: Answers to Students’ Questions on Admissions"

10. Can I combine WAEC/NECO with NABTEB result for admission?


Some schools allow this. Some may allow it but not for all courses.

In order to know if your proposed school accepts such combination and for what courses, you will need to visit the school's admission page, the school admission office or JAMB brochure for clarification.

11. Can I combine both May/June with Nov./Dec Results?


For those schools and courses accepting NABTEB, you can combine these two.

It’s just like combining WAEC May/June and WAEC Nov./Dec or NECO June/July and NECO Nov./Dec.

12. How many times can I use a card to check the result?

You're only allowed to use a card for a registration number 5 times. In other words, you can check your result on 5 different occasions.

Hence, if you just use your checker once, keep it for the future. You can still use it four more times.

Note that, you can only use one card per candidate.

13. How can I check my result FREE?

No way.

All candidates must buy a NABTEB result checker before you can check your result.
