Graduating from secondary school demands that you participate and perform well in one of the Nigerian approved O’level certificate examinations.

As we all know, WAEC, NABTEB and NECO are the biggest O’level examination bodies in Nigeria.

Any of them you sit for is valid for employment and gaining admission into the university.

However, unlike JAMB that candidates have to sit for every year, Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) is completely different.

But the question now is: “how different?”

How many years is WAEC result Valid?

West African Examination Council (WAEC) certificate is valid for life. In other words, after passing the exam with your desired grade, you don’t have to sit for it ever again.

The Registrar of WAEC, Iyi Uwadiae, made this clear in an interview in 2016. He said: “the certificate issued by the examination body is valid for life”.

Therefore, we urge you to disregard the rumours flying around, claiming your WAEC result expires after a certain number of years.

Even if after several years you decide to take a JAMB form and apply to any university, you will still be able to use your WAEC result at any university in Nigeria, provided you pass your JAMB.

How many years is NECO Valid?

Similar to WAEC, your National Examination Council (NECO) result (certificate) is valid for life. It doesn’t have any expiry date. That is, for as long as you live, you can use your NECO result to gain admission into the university and seek employment where applicable.

How many years is NABTEB valid?

Your NABTEB result/certificate is valid for life. Furthermore, all universities in Nigeria accept NABTEB for admission, provided you pass with the required grades.

Although the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) is the least popular examination body (compared to WAEC & NECO), its certificate is as valid as both WAEC and NECO certificates.
