Applications for the National Examination for the Certification of Youth and Adult Skills (encceja) open only once a year. Generally, the term lasts 10 days between May and June. In 2022, they were received between May 24 and June 4.
Brazilians interested in the certificate of completion of elementary or high school must register in the Encceja official website. No fee is charged.
Before showing you how to register for Encceja, see if you can take the test.
Elementary School: for Brazilians with at least 15 years old until the day of the test
High school: for Brazilians with at least 18 years old until the day of the test
1) Access the official website
The first step to register in Encceja is to access the official site. The screen will ask you to enter your CPF and date of birth, and click on a certain figure.
2) Personal data
The second screen will show your data and ask you to complete the rest: father's name (optional); color or race; marital status; nationality; state and city where you were born.
Still on the same screen, enter your address with zip code. If you don't know the zip code, you can check it on the Correios website.
4) Specialized service
The next screen is about specialized care. Check this option if you need any accessibility features, such as proof in LIBRAS and proof with enlarged letters. When marking your condition, you will need to send some certificate or document that proves it.
5) Type of evidence
This is the most important part of Encceja's registration and that can generate some doubts. You must check whether you want to obtain the certificate of completion of elementary school or high school.
The high school certificate is also valid for elementary school, that is, if you are 18 years old or older and did not complete any stage of study, does not need to take the elementary school test before. You can go straight to high school.
If you have never participated in Encceja or do not have a declaration of proficiency in any test, check all four tests (see the image below).
People who have already taken the Encceja and managed to score a test – Mathematics, for example – do not need to take it again.
6) Test city
Select the state and municipality where you want to take the Encceja test. There are about 600 cities available. If your city does not appear, choose the closest one.
7) Certifying institution
Certificates of completion of elementary or high school are not issued by Inep, that is, you cannot access them over the internet. Therefore, choose a certifying institution. This could be your state Department of Education or a federal institute.
After the result of the Encceja, you will have to go to this certifying institution to obtain the diploma. Write it down somewhere so you don't forget.

9) Socioeconomic Questionnaire
The most time-consuming part of Encceja registration has arrived. You will have to fill out a socioeconomic questionnaire with questions about you and your family.
10) Confirm registration
Ready! As you do not need to pay any fee to confirm your enrollment at Encceja, you just have to wait for the test locations to be announced. The test location card is usually released three weeks before the tests.
