The National Examination Council has said that a total of 233,000 candidates, who could not take the NECO examination in some states due to the #EndSARS protests at the time would be accommodated in the external examination, African News Today has gathered.

This was disclosed by the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of NECO, Prof. Godswill Obioma, while giving a breakdown of the results in Minna, Niger State.

The external examination is billed to take place between Monday, February 1 and Wednesday, March 3 2021.

According to the NECO, the states affected by the protest are Abia, Enugu, Edo, River, Ondo, Ekiti, Osun, Lagos, Oyo, Kano, Ogun and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

An analysis of the 2020 results with that of 2019 showed that a total of 829,787 candidates, representing 71.59 per cent, scored a total of five credits, including English and Mathematics in the year 2019, as against the year 2020 where 894,101 candidates, representing 73.89 per cent scored five credits, including Mathematics and English.

The subjects affected by the #EndSARS protests were Chemistry Practical, Economics, Technological Drawing, Food and Nutrition, and Further Mathematics.

He said, “We wish to inform the general public that the council has made specific arrangements for those candidates who missed some papers due to the #EndSARS protests in those states.

“The affected candidates will now sit for those papers missed during the forthcoming 2020 SSCE (external) scheduled from Monday, February 1 to Wednesday, March 3, 2021.”
