How to upload Continuous Assessment (CA3) to NECO Portal

As part of the requirements for the SSCE (Internal), all schools (centres) are to submit their candidates’ third year continuous assessment scores (CA3)

NECO will announce the date when centres can upload the CA3 from the offline registration app.

The offline application will not allow you to add CA3 for the candidates, before the announcement of the date for the submission of CA3.

As soon as the window for the upload is open, schools (centres) should fill in the CA3 using the offline application. Once this is done, the entries should be synchronized to the online application.

If a centre does not send the CA3 within the stipulated period, a penalty of 20,000 Naira must be paid online from the centre’s account before the CA3 can be uploaded.

Results will not be released for schools (centres) that fail to upload the CA3 for their candidates.


When will NECO registration start and when will it close?

NECO application will start in April 2021 and end on 4th May, 2021. Ensure you register within this period to avoid missing the opportunity.

The deadline may be rescheduled depending on how things go. But, to be on the safe side, register as soon as possible.
