The National Examinations Council (NECO) has rescheduled the 2023 National Common Entrance Examinations (NCEE).


This year’s NCEE was initially scheduled to begin on April  29.

But in a statement on Wednesday, Azeez Sani, spokesperson for NECO, said the exam — conducted for admission into federal unity colleges — was rescheduled over low registration.

In the statement, the exam body added that the new date for the exam is June 3.


“The examination was rescheduled to give States with low registration of candidates the opportunity to register their candidates for the examination,” the statement reads.

“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.”

This is not the first time NECO will be rescheduling the exam over low registration.


Last year, the exam body also adjusted the exercise date, citing low registration.
