NECO Postpones 2024 Common Entrance Exam and Suleja Academy Entrance Test

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced the postponement of the 2024 National Common Entrance Examination into Federal Unity Colleges and the Entrance Examination into Federal Government Academy, Suleja. The decision to reschedule both exams was made due to low enrollment figures, according to NECO's Acting Director of the Directorate of Information and Digital Communication, Azeez Sani.

The National Common Entrance Examination, originally scheduled for April 20, 2024, will now be held on June 1, 2024. Similarly, the Entrance Examination for Gifted and Talented Children into Federal Government Academy, Suleja, previously set for May 4, 2024, has been moved to May 25, 2024.

Sani stated that the rescheduling was necessary to accommodate the low number of candidates who have registered for the exams so far. He urged all candidates, parents, guardians, schools, and other concerned parties to take note of the new examination dates.

The registration of candidates for both exams will continue until the new examination dates. NECO has advised all concerned parties to stay informed about any further updates or changes to the examination schedule.

Why this matters: The postponement of these national entrance exams highlights the challenges faced by educational institutions in attracting and enrolling students. It also highlights the importance of effective communication and coordination between examination bodies, schools, and candidates to ensure smooth and well-attended examination processes.

In response to the announcement, Sani emphasized that "the rescheduling is due to the low enrollment of candidates, and the registration of candidates will continue until the new examination dates." He further urged all interested parties to remain vigilant and stay updated on any additional information provided by NECO regarding the 2024 entrance exams.
