A remarkable improvement has been recorded in the results of the 2012 June/July Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) released by the National Examinations Council (NECO). The is the first of its kind in six years.
NECO’s Registrar, Professor Promise Okpala, while announcing the results, revealed that over 50 per cent of the over 1 million candidates that sat for the core subjects of English language, mathematics, economics and biology got credit passes and above.
Professor Okpala said there was a marked improvement in other core subjects of Chemistry, Physics, Government and Commerce as over 45 per cent of the candidates scored credit passes and above as against 15 per cent last year.
However, a massive failure was recorded in most Nigerian languages as only about 10 per cent scored credit passes and above in the minority languages of Edo, Ibibio and Efik.
According to the Professor, NECO has banned 13 schools across Imo, Anambra, Kano, Cross-rivers, Nassarawa, Rivers and Benue states for a period of two years for their involvement in mass examinations malpractice.
