Acting Registrar of NECO, Abubakar Gana, in a statement on Friday, said the council has released the 2018 November/December Senior School Certificate Examination ,SSCE, with 48.68% of the candidates scoring at least five credits and above in both English Language and Mathematics.

He also said 50,057 candidates, representing 72.57 per cent got five credits and above irrespective of English Language and Mathematics.
The NECO boss was however unhappy that there was increase in the number of candidates booked for malpractices in 2019 examination when compared to 2018 exercise.
He said: “While 12,084 cases were recorded in 2018, 17,004 cases was recorded in 2019. This came about as a result of the comprehensive monitoring by senior staff which also resulted in the decline in number of candidates with 5 Credits and above.”
