Can NECO results be used to study abroad, and what universities will accept them in 2023?
It is nothing new that everyone wants to leave Nigeria, considering the unemployment, insecurity, and inflation. Students are not left out, and some want to further their education in countries outside Nigeria.
Today, you will find out if the National Examination Council result can be used to study abroad.
Can NECO Result Be Used To Study Abroad?
Yes, you can use your NECO result to study outside of Nigeria without problems. However, not all Universities or higher educational institutions accept it.
You need to consider using your WAEC result (if you have a good one) as it is preferred and recognized by most universities abroad.
The grades matter a lot. Someone with an excellent NECO result may be admitted instead of another person with a poor WAEC result.
Once you have your good WAEC or NECO result, there is no need for IELTS. You will be asked to submit other documents/certificates, your school transcript, and a valid NECO/WAEC result to confirm your grades.
Can I Use NECO To Study in Ghana?
A few years ago, Nigerian students could not apply to the University of Ghana with NECO results as it was not accepted.

Although you need at least six credit passes [compared to the five accepted in Nigerian institutions] to gain admission, those six subjects must contain compulsory subjects.
