Contact Details of All NECO Offices in Nigeria

We have also made available all phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and the official website of NECO.

This should benefit you, the reader, should you have any reason to contact the foremost O’Level examination body the country.

The National Examinations Council (NECO) is the leading examining board in Nigeria, established by law in 1999 as one of the last acts of the General Abdulsalami Abubakar military administration.

This ushered in a national examinations outfit for the country that was mandated to conduct reliable examinations internally, which could command both national and international respect and acceptability.

By its mandate, NECO was to take over the responsibilities of the National Board for Educational Measurement (NBEM) which was created, in 1992, by the Ibrahim Babangida administration, although its enabling decree was promulgated in 1993.

However, the conduct of the Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) which had, hitherto, been the exclusive preserve of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) was made an additional responsibility of the new examination outfit.

NECO was to take exclusive charge of the conduct of the SSCE for school based candidates while WAEC was to take charge of the same examination for private candidates. NECO conducted its maiden SSCE in mid 2000. In recent times, both examination bodies have taken SSCE for several schools and both their certificates are valid.

The following examinations are conducted by NECO

  • National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE)
  • Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE)
  • Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) Internal and External

It is the vision of the examination body to:

  • Prepare and administer standard and credible nationally and internationally acceptable examinations, and
  • Become a major player within the global assessment industry.

While their mission is to:

  • Ensure that the examinations conducted by NECO are in conformity with the provisions, expectations and yearnings of the National Policy on Education and the National Curriculum, and
  • Deliver Examinations whose results are trusted worldwide for their credibility.

Having know what NECO is all about, we will now focus our attention on their contact details.

    Good morning,
    I wrote neco in 2005 in Benin city and my names was misspelled on the certificate issue to me and I want the correction to be done
    Please how do I go about the correction of name on the certificate

    1. Hi Joseph, kindly visit the NECO office nearest to you for enquiries on the way forward.

  2. Hi, good morning, I wrote 2012 jun/july Neco in Edo state and was told its not ready

  3. Please I have issue with my date of birth.i wrote neco last year,and I went to the school.i was told to go to neco office in abeokuta cos the school’s under ogun state. Please what do you think I’d need when going there

  4. And can I go to the nearest neco office in Lagos or I must go the one in abeokuta???????

    1. Hi Emma, you will need your exam registration number and possibly the result which bears your mistaken date of birth. You can first visit the NECO office nearest to you in Lagos to find out from them what you should to. This may save you the stress of going to Abeokuta.
