The National Examinations Council (NECO) has rescheduled the 2021 National Common Entrance Examination into Federal Unity Colleges.

According to NECO head of Information and Public Relations Division, Mr Azeez Sani, the examination was postponed to June 5 to allow states with low registration to enroll more candidates.

Sani said, “The Examination which was initially scheduled for Saturday 29th May, 2021, was rescheduled to give states with low registration of candidates the opportunity to register their candidates for the examination.

“All candidates, parents, guardians and relevant stakeholders are therefore enjoined to take note of the new date for the examination.”

The council said registration of candidates will continue till the new date of the examination.

Candidates, parents and guardians were advised to download the new Examination Time Table from the Council’s website: www.neco.gov.ng.
