    • Emeka,

      The result would not be listed.

      You will receive a mail or text message if you get shortlisted for the SNEPCO scholarship.

  1. Good day sir, pls I just want to ask, if they have started shortlisting candidates for the scholarship award, since you said the results are out and we can’t see our performance sir.

  2. Good day, please when would the 2022/2023 NNPC/SNEPCO results be released. How many days or weeks after the exam. I feel since it’s an online exam, it should be out soon right?

    • Ayomide,

      The results are out. But you would not be able to see your performance.

      The next stage is to be shortlisted for the scholarship.

      Let me know if you have further questions.
