Candidates Record 60 Percent Pass As NECO Releases 2022 SSCE Results


The National Examinations Council (NECO) on Thursday released the results of the internal diet of the 2022 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) with a total of 727,864 candidates representing 60.74 percent obtaining credit pass and above in five subjects including English Language and Mathematics.

Datani Wushishi, chief executive officer and Registrar of NECO while announcing the results in Minna, Niger State capital said of 1,198,412 candidates that sat for the examination, 636,327 male, representing 52.60 per cent and 573,376 female, representing 47.39 per cent, registered for the examination.

Wushish while giving detailed statistics of the result disclosed that the results of 13,594 candidates representing 0.13 per cent are being withheld in connection with various reported cases of examination malpractice.

He said the figure of those involved in examination malpractice in 2021 was 20,003 and that it represented 1.63 per cent of the total number of candidates for the year, adding that the examination body would remain steadfast in its commitment to sanitising the system.

The NECO registrar further said the Council has a long-standing tradition of zero tolerance for malpractice, adding that the malpractice incidence in 2022 has dropped, compared to the figure of 2021.

The registrar said as part of efforts to show stakeholders of its commitment to zero-tolerance for examination malpractice, four schools were recommended for de-recognition “for two years due to their involvement in mass cheating/whole school cases.”

“Also, twenty-nine (29) supervisors were blacklisted for various offences ranging from poor supervision, Insult, Aiding and Abetting, during the examinations,” Wushish said.
