The National Examinations Council (NECO) has insisted that  they will not extend  June 25 deadline for the registration of the 2021 senior school certificate examination (SSCE) for internal candidates .

A statement  signed by its head of information and public relations division, Azeez Sani, urged relevant stakeholders including states’ education ministries, school owners and managers, among others, to ensure strict compliance.

“The National Examinations Council (NECO) will not extend the registration period for the 2021 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) for school based candidates.

“The registration exercise which started on March 31, will close on Friday, June 25, 2021 and will not be subjected to extension, while the examination will commence unfailingly on Monday, July 5, 2021.”

NECO said the decision is to enable efficient and effective planning for the examination logistics, which it noted are required for the smooth conduct of the examination.

The statement urged the stakeholders to ensure timely completion of their candidates’ registration.

“The Council assures all stakeholders of its resolve to have a seamless conduct of the 2021 SSCE,” Mr Sani wrote.

Established in April, 1999 by the administration of the former head of state, Abdulsalami Abubakar, NECO was a product of long years of agitations for the creation of a national examination body to “ease the growing burden of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).”
