The National Examination Council, NECO, says candidates preparing for the 2022 Senior School Certificate Examinations will be registered offline and validated via their respective state offices.
The council made this known in the new registration guideline made available to newsmen in Abuja.
Recall in past years, students willing to partake in the internal and external SSCE organised by the council had to purchase scratch cards for the purpose of registration.

The cards were provided by the board and made available for tokens at schools and registration centres.
But the council stated that this would not be the case for the 2022 SSCE.
“In order to upload your candidates’ data to the NECO portal and obtain examination numbers, all centres must register candidates offline, validate candidates from NECO state offices, and purchase quota for the number of validated candidates.
“Centres must be activated after candidate validation (centre not activated cannot make payment), create/login into their online account, purchase quota for validated candidates (scratch cards are no longer used), and have a minimum of 20 candidates or pay unviable fee,” the guideline partly read.
The date for the commencement of registration and release of the timetable for the 2022 examinations soon.
