NECO releases 2019 SSCE results
The National Examinations Council (NECO) has released the results of the May/June 2019 Senior School Certificate Examination.
The acting registrar, Abubakar Gana, announced the release at the council headquarters in Minna, Niger State on Tuesday.
He said over eight hundred thousand candidates, representing 71.5 per cent, made five credits and above, including in English and Mathematics.
According to him, the rise in the number of malpractice cases in 2019 was not unconnected with the deployment of the new biometric verification device used in the 2019 SSCE.
He said some members of NECO staff allegedly involved in malpractice cases had been recommended to face the appropriate disciplinary measures.
The council recommended three schools in Kastina, Kebbi and Oyo states for de-recognition from conducting its Senior Secondary School Examinations (SSCE) for two years.
Gana said 17 supervisors were also blacklisted for various offences ranging from poor supervision, aiding and abetting and connivance with non-candidates to write answers on the chalkboard.
The council advised parents, schools and candidates to disregard that publication and to visit only the approved site to check their results as well as to get information on our operations.
