NECO Timetable 2021/2022 for July/August Exam

The examination timetable for the June/July SENIOR SCHOOL CERTIFICATE EXAMINATION (INTERNAL) of the National Examinations Council (NECO) has been published.

For all candidates planning for the June/July SSCE, the NECO 2021 timetable is the most important resource. It enables students to know when a particular subject is scheduled.

In their final year of secondary school, students take the NECO test in June/July. There are two levels of the SSCE. One is called SSCE Internal, and it is for students in their third and final year of senior secondary school. SSCE External, on the other hand, is for candidates who are not enrolled in a school system, i.e. private candidates.

NECO 2021 Exam Date

The review is scheduled to begin on July 5th and end on August 16th, 2021, according to the NECO 2021 Timetable.

Below is the NECO SSCE timetable for 2021.
