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.

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.
