Announcing the Launch of Our New Portal

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new NECO portal. Along with a new look, we have included some features that we hope will make using the site easier and provide a more interactive experience.

One major change is the new domain name, which has been implemented in compliance with recent government policy to standardise all official public websites in an effort to maintain public trust and transparency while browsing the sites.

On the new and improved portal, you can now easily find information on the different exams, register and make online payments for different exams.

As of [date], available features of the platform include SSCE exam registration. The complete online registration and result checking system will be added subsequently.

Please explore the updated portal. We would be grateful for any feedback.

New Payment Option:

The end of the scratch card era!!!

You can now register for your NECO Examinations and check your results online without the use of a scratch card.

The scratch card was introduced as a means of registering for exams and also for result checking purposes. Obtaining the scratch card over the years have stirred up certain issues, like the sale of cards at exorbitant prices by unapproved centers; the delay in candidate’s results and many more.

With the introduction of this new platform, NECO has ensured strict compliance with TSA as well as protecting Candidates from being extorted when they have to go to a cyber café, to either register for an exam or check their result. This payment option also helps NECO in saving the cost incurred as a result of the production of millions of scratch cards, yearly.

The online payment feature on the website has a number of payment options, including card payment, account transfer online or at the bank premise using the generated Remita Retrieval Reference (RRR)
