Is NECO and WAEC to be combined for admission for the 2022/2023 academic session?
Regarding O’ level exams, not everyone is lucky enough to pass in just one sitting. This is why most students register for NECO right after writing WAEC.
Well, you are not a dullard. It happens, and you can still gain admission by combining your results.
Can NECO and WAEC Be Combined For Admission in Nigeria
You can combine WAEC and NECO results to gain admission in Nigeria. Some educational institutions accept two sittings, which makes people who want to use two very lucky.
We may agree that most universities accept the combination of NECO and WAEC results, but it’s sometimes limited to some courses or departments.
If you are going for competitive courses like medicine and surgery, law, pharmacy, dentistry, etc., you will likely not be admitted when you combine O’ level results.

Can I gain admission without WAEC?
Yes, you can gain admission without WAEC results. Some schools accept NECO, WAEC GCE, or even NECO GCE in place of WAEC results.
Unless your WAEC result is not good or lacks some grades, prioritize it when applying for admission to any University, Poly, or COE in Nigeria.
Can I combine WAEC and NECO to study abroad?
It is tough to find schools outside Nigeria that accept the combination of WAEC and NECO results. However, you can use any of them but not combined.
And yes, you must meet the grades requirement before applying for admission. I explained that in my previous article on studying abroad with NECO.
Is WAEC more important than Neco?
Yes, there is no doubt that WAEC is better and more important than NECO in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.
If your WAEC result is good and NECO isn’t too good, use the WASSCE result to apply for admission instead of thinking about combining the two.
I hope you understand that NECO and WAEC can be combined for admission in Nigeria. If you have questions or want to confirm if your school accepts two sittings, leave a comment below.
