NECO June/July examination is not only for candidates in their final year of secondary school but also for those who are not in the school system. This exam is divided into two categories: SSCE Internal and SSCE External. SSCE Internal is for candidates in their third and final year of senior secondary education while SSCE External is for private candidates.

The NECO timetable for 2022 is available online. You can also find a PDF version of the NECO timetable for 2022. The NECO examination is scheduled to take off on 27TH JUNE and ends on 12TH AUGUST 2022.

NECO Timetable

Arts students are expected to offer a total of eight subjects, while science and commercial students are to offer nine subjects each.
Thetable is arranged according to subject clusters. The NECO timetable is designed to allow students focus on a few subjects at a time, rather than all of their subjects at once.

This is intended to reduce stress and enable students to give their best performance on the day of the exam. The timetable is also designed to allow for students to get a good night’s sleep before their exams. The NECO timetable is released a few weeks before the exams begin.

Students are advised to start preparing for their exams as soon as the timetable is released. Please find the NECO Timetable below.

NOTE: NECO will fix the actual date and time.
