    If I register online where am I going to write the exams

    • For NECO SSCE, you need to register under an accredited school else you may not be able to write your exams.

      • You already outlined the online mode of registering. Are you saying we still need to consult an acredited school on our own or would neco assign one for us ?

    • Lamidi S. A Reply

      you can not register under any school online, you can only contact the school where you wish to register and the school will register you for the neco exam
