Low registration forces NECO to reschedule 2023 common entrance exams
The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced the rescheduling of the 2023 National Common Entrance Examinations because of the low number of registered candidates.
The examination body said the extension would give States with low numbers the opportunity to register more candidates.
In a statement by the Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, NECO noted that the NCCE examination for admission into Federal Unity Colleges would hold on Saturday, June 3 instead of Saturday, April 29 as earlier scheduled.
The statement partly reads: “The Examination was rescheduled to give states with low registration of candidates the opportunity to register their candidates for the examination.
“All candidates, parents, guardians, schools and relevant stakeholders are therefore enjoined to take note of the new date for the examination. The registration of candidates will continue till the new date of the examination.”
