About NECO BECE
The Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is given to students in their last year of Junior Secondary School. It is used to bridge the gap between JSS 3 of the basic education class and senior secondary school.
While each federation state and the FCT administer the BECE to their applicants, NECO administers the exam to Federal Unity Colleges and other related institutions.
Private secondary schools that are interested in taking the test must be approved by their respective state Ministries of Education. As the first school-leaving credential, the BECE certificate replaces the elementary school certificate.
