NECO announces SSCE results 52.9% passed

The National Examinations Council (NECO) announced yesterday that 52.29 per cent of the candidates, who sat for the June/July 2014 Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) passed at credit level in five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics.

The Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of the Council, Prof. Promise Okpala, who announced the result in Minna, said 74.30 per cent of the candidates made five credits and above.
He said 978,886 candidates of the 989,622, who registered, sat for the examination, which was conducted in 76 subjects.

Giving a breakdown of the result, Okpala said of the 989,622 candidates, who wrote the examination, 72.58 per cent scored credit level and above in English language, while 69.49 per cent made similar grades in Mathematics.

In sciences, 72.86 per cent of the candidates, who sat for Chemistry had credits, while 69.38 per cent of Physics candidates had credit and in Biology, 67.83 per cent of the candidates made credit grades.
Okpala said beyond the cost of running the examination, insecurity in many parts of the country affected the logistic operations of the council during the school-based examination.

The registrar said the efforts of the council at reducing examination malpractices paid off, as only 0.44 per cent of those who sat for the examination were involved in malpractices.
A comparative analysis of past results showed a steady improvement in results over the past three years, posting the best result in the current year.
