The National Examinations Council (NECO), has on Wednesday released the results of the November/December 2015 Senior School Certificate Examinations.

Garba said that out of the number that sat for English, 29,718 representing 62.55 per cent obtained credit pass while 32, 484 that sat for Mathematics representing 68.30% passed at credit level.
He said: “The performance of candidates by subject reveals that out of 39,389 candidates that sat for Biology, 17,227 or 43.73 per cent obtained credit pass, while in Chemistry, out of 22,284 candidates that sat the examination, 11,951 representing 53.63 per cent made it at credit level.”
“Out of 22,201 candidates, who sat for Physics, 818 or 3.68 per cent passed the subject at credit level. In Geography, 19, 781 candidates sat the examination, and 3,851 or 19.46 passed at credit level.”
He added: “In view of the fact that the examination was for private candidates who were no longer in the school system and looking for one or two credits, the desperation to engage in malpractice was high.
“This led to an increase in the percentage of candidates involved in malpractice, compared to the figure for 2014.”
Candidates are therefore urged to access their results on NECO website www.mynecoexam.com, using their Examination Registration Number and scratch cards.
