I wanted to check if "Concoc" was already a word or a brand name for anything, and it seems it is used in Brazillian videos, but I can't find it in a Portuguese dictionary.

Does CONCOC mean anything?
I don't speak any Portuguese so I can't deduce the meaning from context.

google video results for "concoc"

    It is a name of a School. No means. I believe it is an Acronym or initials

    CONCOC refers to the COC teaching system, originally Brazilian but bought by Pearson and CON is concurso, a competitive exam. So, the COC schools have competitive exams (concursos) to give scholarships to kids at various levels of education. So, CONCOC means: a competitive exam given by a COC school for purposes of bestowing scholarships.

  • @Lambie this comment could be an answer. Why don't you write one? I think it is more complete than the existing one. Sep 29 at 18:33
  • @RafaelTavares OK, I put it in. Someone has been downvoting my answers. That just bores me. :)

Concoc is a brand in Brazil. They are schools around the country. Usually, they give scholarship, so, these videos are tips to the test for scholarship.

Here part of a news about it:

O aulão CONCOC ocorre no Cinesystem do Shopping Iguatemi, em Florianópolis, das 8h às 12h. Das 14h às 17h, do mesmo dia, será aplicada uma prova de conhecimentos gerais, na sede do COC, para os alunos concorrerem a bolsas de estudo na unidade. Todos os participantes da prova ganharão descontos na mensalidade do ensino médio.

In a quick and free translate: A class preparation for scholarship happened.

  • This is most definitely not a brand. A brand is a marca [de produto].

  • ConCOC stands for "concurso COC". It claims to be copyrighted in Brazil. I have not checked if the claim is true. At the very bottom of concoc.com.br/sobre Dec 29 '18 at 3:09
