    NECO Releases 2017 Examination Results

    The National Examinations Council has released the June/July 2017 Senior Secondary Schools Examination results today.

    This was made known by the Registrar of the council, Prof. Charles Uwakwe, who announced the result at the NECO headquarters in Minna, Niger State capital.

    He said over 1,055,988 candidates registered for the examination, while 1,051472 actually sat for the test which covered a total of 76 subjects.

    The registrar added that 50,586 candidates were involved in examination malpractices, with 276 schools involved in “mass cheating” in 34 states.

    According to him, out of the 1,055,988 candidates who registered for the examinations in Nigeria and other countries only 1,051,472 sat and only 745,053 (70.85 percent) got 5 credits and above including Mathematics and English Language.

    “We have 50,586 (4.81 percent) candidates involved in examination malpractice and this represents 0.52% increment compared with 2016 that had 43,905 cases (4.29%).

    “A total of 276 schools were involved in mass cheating in 34 states and 6 schools have been de-recognised with 23 supervisors blacklisted for aiding malpractice.”
