National Examination Council (NECO)
The National Examinations Council yesterday released the 2019 June/July Senior School Certificate Examination results. It delisted 18 supervisors and de-recognised three schools in Katsina, Kebbi and Oyo States for two years for alleged involvement in malpractices.
The acting registrar, Abubakar Gana, announced the release at the council headquarters in Minna, Niger State on Tuesday.
He said 829,787 candidates, representing 71.5 per cent, made five credits and above, including in English and Mathematics.
Mr Gana said 40,630 representing 3.53 per cent of the candidates were involved in various forms of malpractice as against 20,181 cases recorded in 2018, representing an increase of over 50 per cent.
He said 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.
“More robust monitoring by staff and external monitors also contributed to more sensitivity in detecting malpractices,” he said.
He said some members of NECO staff allegedly involved in malpractice cases had been recommended to face the appropriate disciplinary measures.
”Once they fail to satisfactorily defend themselves, they would be dismissed or punished appropriately, ” he said.
