The National Examinations Council (NECO) is making significant strides in the evaluation process for its 2023 school-based senior secondary certificate examination (SSCE). As the month of September unfolds, NECO has officially commenced the meticulous process of marking examination scripts. This crucial step is anticipated to be completed within a two-week timeframe, culminating in the release of the results by the end of September.
In a record-breaking turnout, a staggering total of 1,205,888 candidates from across the nation registered for this examination. This figure is impressively balanced, with 601,074 male candidates and 584,814 female candidates. The high number of participants underscores the importance of NECO in the educational landscape of Nigeria.
Mr. Azeez Sani, the Head of Information and Public Relations at NECO, confirmed the commencement of the marking process in an exclusive interview with Sunday Tribune. This initiative is a testament to NECO’s commitment to ensuring the timely dissemination of results, enabling candidates to use them for various academic purposes, including university admissions and other tertiary institutions.
However, Mr. Sani took the opportunity to urge state governments with outstanding examination fees for their students to promptly settle these obligations. By doing so, they will not only support the smooth and efficient operation of NECO but also facilitate a seamless educational journey for their students.
NECO has consistently demonstrated its dedication to fostering educational advancement in Nigeria, and the timely release of results is a vital component of this mission. As the examination body diligently carries out the marking process, students and educational stakeholders eagerly await the results that will shape the academic trajectories of countless individuals.
