Differences Between NECO And WAEC
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) is responsible for conducting the senior secondary school examination (SSCE) in several West African countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, Gambia, Liberia and Sierra Leone. WAEC conducts two major examinations in Nigeria.
First, WAEC conducts the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for senior secondary school students. The WASSCE is intended for students writing their final examination in senior secondary school three (SS3). The WASSCE examination is held every year in May and June.
The second exam conducted by WAEC is the Private Candidate Examination often referred to as the General Certificate Examination (GCE). The GCE is held every year in November and December. The GCE is open to anyone who is interested in doing this examination.
The National Examination Council (NECO) is the Nigerian examination board responsible for conducting the SSCE for senior secondary school students. NECO was established by the Nigerian government as an alternative to WAEC. NECO conducts SSCE examinations only in Nigeria.
NECO conducts two examinations in Nigeria. The first is the NECO senior secondary school certificate examination (SSCE) which is held in June and July. The NECO SSCE is intended for students in the sixth year of their secondary school education (SS3).
The second examination conducted by NECO is the external SSCE examination which is held in November and December. The second examination is open to anyone who is interested and the NECO equivalent of the GCE.
