2019 NECO results Is out, See How to Check Your Result
The National Examinations Council(NECO) has released their 2019 June/July Senior School Certificate Examination results.
Abubakar Gana, the acting registrar, announced the release on Tuesday at the council headquarters in Minna, Niger State.
Gana said 829,787 candidates, representing 71.5 per cent, made five credits and above, including in English and Mathematics.
He revealed that 40,630 representing 3.53 per cent of the candidates were involved in various forms of malpractice as against 20,181 cases recorded in 2018, representing an increase of over 50 per cent.
He said the rise in the number of malpractice cases in 2019 was not unconnected with the deployment of the new biometric verification device used in the 2019 SSCE.
“More robust monitoring by staff and external monitors also contributed to more sensitivity in detecting malpractices,” he said.
Gana further noted some members of NECO staff allegedly involved in malpractice cases had been recommended to face the appropriate disciplinary measures.
”Once they fail to satisfactorily defend themselves, they would be dismissed or punished appropriately, ” he said.
