Universities Accepting Combined Results, How to Check etc

I have a series of questions regards SSCE results and their uses for admissions. Dedicated posts had been written to handle WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, and NBAIS in the past. Consider reading those linked posts now and come back here if you can't find answers to your questions in the posts.

If you have one or two questions about any of the above-mentioned O'level results, the collection below may be of help.

1. Can I combine two WAEC results?

Yes, you can. Generally, all schools - universities, polytechnics, colleges of education, schools of nursing, and colleges of health technology accept the combination of results.

You can also combine WAEC with GCE or with any other type of exam including NECO, NABTEB, etc.

We now have UNILAG as the only school not accepting combining results. A few schools accept the combination but not for all the courses. I detailed those schools and their conditions in my post, "Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges Accepting Two Sittings For Admission".

2. Can I Use NECO to Enter University?

Yes, you can use NECO (be it NECO June/July or Nov/Dec) to gain admission into any university of your choice. Generally, all higher institutions accept NECO just like WAEC, GCE, and NABTEB. You can also combine your NECO with another NECO or any other exam type to gain admission.

3. Can WAEC and GCE be Combined? 

Yes, it can be combined. All schools accept a combination of WAEC and GCE

4. Can I use My GCE Result to Enter University?

Yes, you can. Now WAEC GCE is two series – the Jan/Feb Series and the Aug/Sept. one. Both can be used to enter a university, polytechnic, or college of education. In fact, you can combine it with any other exams or internal exams such as WAEC May/June, NECO, or NABTEB June/July.

5. How can I combine O’level results?

Note that only two sittings can be combined. Below are possible ways to combine results:

  • WAEC May/June and WAEC May/June
  • WAEC May/June and WAEC GCE
  • NECO June/July and NECO June/July
  • NECO Nov/Dec (GCE) and NECO Nov/Dec (GCE)
  • NECO June/July and NECO Nov/Dec (GCE)
  • NABTEB May/June and NABTEB May/June
  • NABTEB May/June and NABTEB Nov/Dec
  • NABTEB (any type) and NECO (any type)
  • NABTEB (any type) and WAEC (any type)

You will need 5 or 6 required subjects from the two combinations.

Some schools or colleges of nursing may not accept NABTEB. Some universities may not accept two sittings for certain courses like Medicine, Law, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy, etc. Hence, no combination is allowed for such courses or schools. I referred to that in a link earlier.

6. For my admission, can I use combined results?

Yes, you can. By combined results, it means two combinations of WAEC and WAEC, NECO and NECO, NABTEB and NABTEB, NABTEB and WAEC, NABTEB and NECO, NABTEB and GCE, WAEC and GCE, NECO and GCE, GCE and GCE, etc.

Note that any combination is possible for almost all institutions. However, a school of nursing may not accept NABTEB or its combination with WAEC or NECO - But not all. Read more in the post, "Can I Use NABTEB Result for Nursing Admission? See Answer!"

More so, you must produce at least 5 credit passes or 6 in combination depending on the school's admission policy.

7. Is the NABTEB result for May/June or November/December out?

This is how to check if the result is out or not. Visit the NABTEB result checking page or go straight to https://eworld.nabtebnigeria.org/

News will appear on the page to tell you if the result is out or not. if the news doesn't show up, enter your checking card details to confirm. If the result loads, it is out. If not, check again later.

Mind you, checking it before the result is out won't count the number of card usage. The counting of the card usage starts when you're able to check.

8. How do I reprint the NABTEB photocard or Exams slip

For May/June candidates, visit https://mayjune.nabtebnigeria.org/ReprintPhotoCard.aspx and log in with your candidate’s registration/exam number. November/December candidates should visit https://novdec.nabtebnigeria.org/applyreprintphotocard.aspx and check with either their candidates’ numbers or registration card serial numbers.

9. How Can I Know if the GCE Result is Out?

As soon as your WAEC GCE, NECO GCE, NABTEB, or NBAIS GCE is out, you can check on the exam body’s website. That's the best way to know if the results are released and available for checking.

To know if the result has been officially released, check the exam body’s website as listed below. Then, follow the guides here to check.

  1. To check older NECO results up to 2018 June/July, click here.

10. What are the universities accepting GCE results?

Generally, all Nigerian universities accept GCE results. You can use any of WAEC GCE, NECO GCE, NABTEB or NBAIS GCE result to seek admission into the following categories of universities in Nigeria.

  1. All federal universities
  2. All State Universities
  3. All private universities

All other schools including the polytechnics, colleges of education, innovation enterprise institutions, schools of nursing, and colleges of health technology, etc. also accept GCE results.

More so, a combination of GCE results and any other internal exams is equally acceptable for admissions.

11. Is UNILAG accepting NECO Results for admission?

Yes, they do. The university accepts NECO for her admission. They, also accept a combination of NECO with WAEC (GCE) or NABTEB (GCE).

12. Does UNILAG accept GCE results for admission?

Yes, they do. You can use WAEC GCE, NECO GCE, and NABTEB GCE to gain admission into UNILAG.  And any possible combination is acceptable to the university.
