How to check NECO result without exam number?
Many candidates are asking this question on Google. With the numerous search results available, chances are you just couldn’t trust any of them. Well, that is why I am here to share my recent online NECO result checking experience with you. I will be showing you how to check NECO result without exam number if that is impossible.
We all know that the result of any exam is important to see if you passed or failed. But, especially if it is a national examination like NECO or WAEC, there is so much tension surrounding checking results, and I do not intend to add to your tense mood.
The National Examination Council (NECO) is a national examination board responsible for administering and conducting senior secondary school exams (SSCE). After successfully registering for NECO exams, every eligible candidate is provided with an exam number. The exam number is used to write NECO exams and is expected to check NECO results.
This article will discuss the NECO examination number, how to check NECO result without exam number, the difference between NECO exam number and registration number, and how to retrieve your exam number.
Without further ado, let’s delve into the deal of the day.
What is NECO Exam Number?
The National Examination Council issues the NECO examination number to candidates who registered for the NECO examination. It is a combination of alphabets and numbers which looks like this: 12345678AB.
Every registered candidate has a unique number that is peculiar to them. No two candidates sitting to write NECO exams have the same NECO exam number. Of course, sitting for a NECO exam more than once would mean you have a new NECO exam number for every time you sit for a NECO exam.
A significant use of the NECO exam number is to help personalize your NECO exam booklet. In addition, the exam number is used to help you check your result when it is released. So with that, let’s look at how to check NECO result without exam number.
How to Check NECO Result without Exam Number
To check your NECO result without exam number is not possible. You cannot check your NECO result without providing your NECO exam number. I made it clear during my introduction that your NECO examination result is used in personalizing and presenting your NECO result. Without it, there would be no reference for your result; hence you cannot check your NECO result without your exam number.
When you want to check your NECO result, you will be asked to provide the following items:
- Your exam year
- The exam type you wrote, which is either NECO Internal or External or the National Common Entrance Examination
- Your token, the number on the NECO scratch card you bought
- NECO examination number or registration number
NECO Examination Number vs NECO Registration Number: What’s the Difference?
You must have sustained some confusion when you saw me write the NECO examination number or registration number in the fourth item in the list above. If you take a closer look at the image below, you will see that there is a citation of the word “examination number” while the box provided in the section for checking results says “registration number.”
Are they different?
When we talk about the NECO exam number and the NECO registration number, do we mean two different things?
Well, No. The NECO exam number and registration number are the same things. It is the same unique string of numbers that contains digits and letters. So, like the example I provided above, a typical exam number or registration number looks like “12345678AB.”
How Can I Retrieve My NECO Examination Number?
Your NECO result can only be obtained with your NECO examination number. Therefore, if you have forgotten or misplaced it, it is important to figure out how to retrieve it. Else you may never have access to your NECO results.
To retrieve your NECO exam number, follow the steps below:
- Visit the NECO office in your state
- You will be asked to provide your full name, type of examination, year of examination, exam centre, and other details.
Alternatively, you can go to the exam centre you wrote your exams in to retrieve your NECO exam number. For example, you could waltz into the examiner’s office for your centre if you wrote the NECO Internal exam. I guess you can do the same if you wrote the NECO external exam.
Contacting the NECO office through their helplines is also another way to retrieve your NECO exam number. The NECO office in your state may be very far. You could contact NECO through their helplines from 8 am to 8 pm Mondays to Fridays.
The NECO helplines to call are 08069232760, 08052218070, 08126886938, 08052218069, 08126886939, 0818934275, and 08189342653. If the helplines do not work, you can try reaching them via email at [email protected] or [email protected].
