The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced a new date for the commencement of its 2018 November/December Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE).
Acting Registrar of NECO, Mr Abubakar Gana, said the examination earlier scheduled for 15 November will now commence on the 19th of November, 2018.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.
The statement signed by the acting Registrar, called on candidates for the examination to visit NECO website and get updated with other relevant information.
The statement read in part : “Candidates are hereby requested to download the new examination time table on the NECO website: www.mynecoexams.com and the email used for the registration.
“Please note that this information supersedes the earlier media publication on the commencement date for the examination date.”
The examination body, however, expressed regrets over any inconveniences the change might have caused candidates.
The AUTHORITY reports that apart from the June/July SSCE which NECO conducts for school-based candidates , the examination body also carries out November/December exam mainly for its external candidates every year.
