Will NECO Results Meet Up With This Year Admission?

Why YES – NECO Results Will Meet Up with Admission?
NECO logo
You can get confused about whether NECO June/July will meet up with this year's admission. This is because most applicants are aware that WAEC will do but they can't say so much about NECO.

Well, truth be told, the answer to that question is YES - it can. However, it may not. Let’s look at it closely.

I recently answered a similar question on whether WAEC GCE or NECO GCE results will be released before schools start this year's admission exercise. You can take a moment to see my answer.

In order to clarify my YES and NO position on this, read to the end of this post.

Why YES – NECO Results Will Meet Up with Admission

The answer is YES because, under normal circumstances, all schools must allow WAEC and NECO to release their results before they start or close their admission application. In fact, some will wait for the two results before selling the form at all.

Experience has shown that 90% of our universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education will not start selling their post-UTMEs or admission screening forms until both NECO and WAEC results are released.

And where a school sells the form before the results are out, they let the sales to remain on sales/opened until those results are finally released. Some schools will give their applicants more grace to update their O’level results shortly after NECO results are announced.

Only a few schools usually rush the sales of their post UTME forms. These may include Kwara State University (KWASU), Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA), Nigerian Police (NPA), and many private universities, including BOWEN, Covenant University, Backcock, etc. Most federal- and state-owned schools are under the obligation to allow both WAEC and NECO internal results to meet each year's admission.

RecommendedIs it Possible to Upgrade the Results of WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, or GCE?

Why NO – NECO Results May Not Up With Admission

As stated above, if you’re chasing any of the above schools, private universities whose post UTME forms may be too early to come out, and a few military universities in Nigeria, it’s possible NECO results may not meet up.

More so, if you're proposing to use NECO GCE results for this year's admission instead, you may eventually be out of luck for some institutions.

Especially for the 2020 NECO where a few students missed papers due to EndSARS protest. The exams body had consequently picked February of 2021 for the conduct of the Maku-up papers. As a result, this may delay the release of the results (of a few candidates affected) which will obviously force most schools to close the admission forms before the final release that month or a few days later. 

When Will NECO Result Be Out?

Generally, all exam bodies are changing the system. You don't have to wait for three months before seeing your results again. They want their candidates to meet up with the yearly admission exercise. This is why results are being released within the first two months after the exams. Precisely, NECO results will be out 43 days after the last paper, while WAEC is now consistent with 45/50 days.

Hence, you can start counting your days from the last day you wore your school uniform.

If the 43 days will be favorable, you will know that when your proposed schools start selling their admission/post UTME forms.

Conclusion

I guarantee you will be able to use this year's NECO result for admission into most federal and state-owned universities, polytechnics, and colleges of education.

If however, you’re dealing with private schools and NDA especially, it may not work. You can contact your private school's admission office on their position on using awaiting NECO results for their admission.

    1. The answer to this is not that direct. But I can assure that, as at the time of answering this question, the portal is opened for candidates enter their awaiting results. With my experience, for the school to have opened the portal opened till now, they're waiting for NECO results before they will stop the portal for such.

      In fact, the option to upload the waiting results is only active for those who filled AR during the post UTME registration. This means, they want to wait for NECO to help candidates on AR. Be hopeful!

      I made reference to this in the post, "Can I Upload Outstanding or Held Results on JAMB/School Portal? See Answer" https://www.schoolcontents.info/2019/08/can-i-upload-outstanding-or-held.html

    2. I can't be certain right now. But since the portal allows you to take AR, it means they still want you to use awaiting result. Check the portal back when the result is released to seen if you can edit things.

    1. There is no way to guarantee that your NECO results will meet the school admission if the portal is already closed. Just be hopeful. If it doesn't meet the Poly Ibadan screening, you can consider any other school available when the results come out.

    2. Will the neco result be released before Jan 31

    3. No. NECO has rescheduled papers for candidates who missed some papers to next year. With this, the results may not be released any time sooner.
