Do you want to know how you can retrieve your NECO examination number? We’ll teach you how to easily recover your NECO examination or registration number in this article. It’s also completely free.
NECO, the national examination council, assigns each of its applicants a unique 10-digit alphanumeric number. The number is used to identify students and can also be used to check NECO results after they are revealed.
The NECO exam number is made up of eight numbers and two capital letters. Let’s look at an example: 60514564AD.
Each student in various years has a separate number. For example, your NECO exam number for this year could be the same as someone else’s exam number from a previous year.
How to Retrieve NECO Examination Number
The method by which NECO calculates exam numbers has not been made public. Unlike NECO, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) is open about how it comes up with WAEC exam numbers; the first seven are WAEC centre numbers, while the last three are WAEC seat numbers.
Visit a NECO office in your state and provide the following information;
- Full name.
- Year of the exam.
- Name of school where the exam was written.
A national examination council official will use this information to search the NECO database using the information you provided. Viola! You will be given your NECO examination number.
NECO does not charge its applicants to retrieve exam numbers as of the time of publication of this article. Policies may, however, alter in the future. So it’s a good idea to bring some cash to the NECO office.
