NECO Results for June/July 2010 SSCE Exam

THE National Examination Council (NECO), on Monday 20/09/10, released the results of the June/July Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE). The total analysis of the results showed another poor performance by candidates that sat for the examination.

While a total of 1,143, 169 candidates registered for the examination, 1,132,357 actually sat for the examination.

A breakdown of the results showed that only 244,456 candidates passed English Language at credit level  while 279,974 passed Mathematics.

Forty-three per cent of the number of candidates that sat for the examination passed at credit level in Biology, just as 29.49 per cent attained the same level in Physics and 36.18 per cent in Chemistry.

The analysis also showed that apart from Financial Accounting and Music, in which 40 per cent of the candidates recorded credit level passes, credit passes in other subjects were below 40 per cent.

The implication of the results, according to education experts, is that by virtue of the results released, over 60 per cent of the 1,132,357 candidates that sat for the examination would not gain admission to any Nigerian university.

Registrar and Chief Executive Officer of NECO, Professor Promise Okpala, who announced the release of the results but declined to give a summary of the outcome, described the results as fair, but said it was not the responsibility of the body to determine candidates that would gain admission into universities.

Okpala said that the level of malpractices had also reduced as only 615,010 cases were recorded, adding that Ekiti, Rivers, Kaduna, Enugu and Nasarawa states topped the list.
