Yes, you can.

As a matter of fact, if you mean repeating – by going back to the senior class and enroll while still at the college, I don’t think that’s rational. Why will you want to be in a secondary school class while lectures are ongoing at the college?

But if you mean resiting for your ordinary level exams, the answer is YES.

Any student who gains admission with a waiver or two in his or her ordinary level (SSCE – WAEC, NECO, NATBEB, or NBAIS) result grades can still rewrite the final exams to make up for those deficiencies.

Another situation is if you aim to change your course in the future and that requires a new set of senior class subjects, you may resit for your WAEC, NECO, NABTEB even though you’re already in a university, polytechnic, or college of education.

Resiting For O’Level while in Higher Institution – Internal or GCE?

While trying to resist your WAEC, NECO, and NABTEB, it may not be possible for you to use the internal (i.e May/June diet). This is because most schools require candidates who will be writing the next internal exams to, at least, start from SS2.

Generally, candidates who will sit for the internal diet of these SSCE will also take part in the last promotion exams (if government schools) and/or continuous assessment (CA) tests (both government and private schools) which are usually required by the exams bodies. Hence, if you think you can just join them at SS3 and write the exams, you’re out of the latest updates.

As a result of this limitation, your best bet, if you choose SSCE, is the exams for the private candidates i.e WAEC GCE, NECO GCE, NABTEB GCE, or NBAIS GCE.
