Unfortunately, they don’t. We will get into this and I will reveal the results they actually accept.

How Brandon University Handles Your Documents

All documents you submit to Brandon University become its property. If you are in your last year of high school, you need to include a letter from your principal or an authorized person saying that you’ll complete high school before university starts.

If your transcripts are not in English, a certified translator must translate them. This translator should also state that you got the documents in a sealed envelope. You should send both the original official transcript and the translated version to the Admissions Office.

If you’ve already done some courses at a college or university, your admission can’t just be based on your high school records. So, you will have to include all your higher education information in your application.

Now, let’s get into the main discussion that concerns us.

Does Brandon University accept NECO result?

Unfortunately, Brandon University is not among the international universities that accept NECO results. The Admissions Office works hard to keep the information up-to-date regarding the requirements. When they receive your application, they will send you an email asking for specific documents. These documents include:

  • West African Examinations Certificate (WAEC) and
  • General Certificate of Education (GCE)

Let’s begin with GCE.

1. GCE

If you need admission to Brandon University with GCE, to qualify, you need to have passed 5 different subjects, with at least two subjects at the Advanced level. Another option is to pass 4 different subjects, with at least 3 at the Advanced level. I personally reached out to Brandon University and they informed me about the following that you will need:

  1. Two Advanced Subsidiary level courses can be used in place of one Advanced level course.
  2. Four Advanced Subsidiary Level courses can replace two Advanced Level courses.
  3. One Advanced Subsidiary subject counts the same as one Ordinary level subject.


If you don’t have NECO, your WAEC is 100% accepted. For WAEC, you need at least 5 subjects with grades C5 or higher, including English and Mathematics. You must buy a scratch card and send all of this information in one email: your name, the serial/PIN, examination number, and the exam date including the year.

3. English Language Proficiency Test Scores

You must send your scores for English language proficiency tests in a sealed envelope from the exam authority. However, for TOEFL, you have the option to submit your scores electronically directly through TOEFL (ETS) if you prefer.
