Share This

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has released the results of 2019 May/June examinations with 829,787 candidates, representing 71.59%, making five credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics.

NECO Acting Registrar/Chief Executive, Abubakar Mohammed Gana, added that the number of candidates, who made 5 credits and above, irrespective of English Language and Mathematics, is 1,041,986 – representing 89.90%.

Gana, who announced the release at the NECO Headquarters in Minna, adjudged the 2019 June/July SSCE as a huge success, stating that NECO has “once again delivered on its mandate”.

He recommended three schools in Kastina, Kebbi and Oyo states for de-recognition from conducting its Senior Secondary School Examinations (SSCE) for 2 years. According to him, the schools were de-recognised for their involvements in mass cheating and being special centres.

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.

He added that 40,630, representing 3.53% of the candidates who sat for the examination, were involved in various forms of malpractice. The number of malpractice cases when compared to 2019 increased with over 50%, the Acting Registrar said.

Giving an analysis of the performance of the candidates, the acting registrar said 1,151,016 candidates, including 146 blind candidates, sat for the 2019 June/July SSCE examination.

He said 984,152, representing 85.50% of the candidates, made credit and above in English Language while 954,399, representing 83.03% of candidates, made credit and above in mathematics.

It will be recalled that over one million candidates sat for the examination and had been clamouring for the release to enable them to begin admission for the 2019/2020 academic year.
