NECO WAEC SSCE


Many years ago, it was just the SSCE conducted by the West African Examination Council (WAEC). These days there are more SSCE in a year giving candidates ample options to realize their O-Level prerequisite for entry into tertiary institutions not later than a year. So, which other examination body is in competition with WAEC? What are the SSC Exams being written within a year? At which month of the year are the exams written?

Presently in Nigeria, there are two widely acknowledged bodies offering Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE). They are WAEC and NECO. In essence, you could say SSCE WAEC also known as WASSCE (West Africa Senior Secondary Certificate Examination); and you could also say SSCE NECO.

West African Examination Council (WAEC) organizes SSCE in a number of West African countries including Nigeria, Ghana, Gambia, and others. National Examination Council (NECO) organizes exams exclusively for Nigeria. NECO was established by the government of Nigeria in 1999. Its mandate is to organize the National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE), Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) – for Federal unity schools; and SSCE internal and external.

The Two Categories of SSCE

SSCEs are in two categories – internal and external. The two

  • Internal SSCE: Both WAEC and NECO organize internal SSCE which is meant for students in the last class of the senior secondary school (SSS 3). WAEC SSCE-Internal comes up between March and May. It is sometimes referred to as May/June. On the other hand, NECO SSCE-Internal comes up between May and July. It is sometimes called June/July.
  • External SSCE: Also, both WAEC and NECO organize external SSCE. External SSCE is mostly referred to as General Certificate Examination (GCE). It is meant for private candidates out of secondary school. WAEC SSCE-External comes up between October and November while NECO SSCE-External comes up between November and December.

It is important to note that non of the exams is inferior to the other in terms of value or worth. It is also remarkable to mention that candidates are allowed to combine both WAEC and NECO SSCEs in securing admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

Interestingly, students, teachers and parents or guardians representing stake holders have a lot to gain from the competitiveness between WAEC and NECO. This is consequent upon the efficiency that’s now within the systems. There has been tremendous improvement in the employment of man and technology which has made the waiting time for result very short.
