Can NECO results be used to study abroad, and what universities will accept them in 2024?

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?

You can use your NECO result to study outside 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 someone 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.
