NECO Walk-in Candidates Registration: How to, Modalities, Price, and More

Let’s talk about NECO exam registration and its walk-in candidate registration for their GCE or November/December exams.

The National Examination Council conducts two SSCE exams yearly. First, NECO June/July is usually called NECO Internal. This is the school candidates' exam. Second, the NECO (GCE) Nov/Dec is usually called the NECO external. This is the private candidate's exam.

Read more about NECO and her exams in my post, “NECO Exams and Results: Answers to Your Questions on National Examination Council (NECO).

NECO Add Walk-in Registration Opportunity 

The Walk-in registration is an opportunity for all interested applicants who missed the deadline (closing date) for the application.

However, this is, as at the time of this writing, only opened to the NECO external. In other words, the school candidates' exam does not allow late registration in such a manner.

How Does NCEO GCE Walk-in Application Work?

  1. Candidates who wish to register and sit for 2023 NOV/DEC SSCE after the closing date must adhere to the following guidelines:
  2. Candidates must complete their registration within twenty-four (24) hours to the scheduled time of the paper(s) that they intend to sit for. The Walk-in-Candidate’s fee for the examination is twenty thousand naira only (N20,000.00) per candidate
  3. Candidates are to pay the registration fee to NECO TSA and present evidence of payment at the NECO State Office.
  4. Candidates are to collect activated registration scratch cards from the NECO State Office.
  5. Biometrics enrollment is mandatory for this examination.
  6. Candidates are to report to the examination center on the date and time of the scheduled

  1. This means a candidate can at any time (while the exam is already on and some papers are done) still register for the exams and partake in the rest of the papers. Such candidates will only be allowed to write any next papers but not the ones already done.
  2. NECO GCE is right for you if you have one or two deficiencies in your NECO June/July results. You can take this exam to make up for such.
  3. You can check if the registration is still open to walk-in candidates when papers are still ongoing. As soon as the final paper is done, no such chance opened again.
