The National Examinations Council (NECO) has disclosed that no definite decision has been taken yet on postponing the Senior Secondary School Examination (SSCE) and the Basic Education Common Entrance Examination (BECE).
NECO Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Alhaji Azeez Sani, disclosed this in a statement made available to journalists in Minna, Niger State, on Wednesday.
He added that though the institution was monitoring developments as it relates to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in Nigeria, all other examinations under the purview of the examination body are on course to hold as planned.
Alhaji Sanni, however, confirmed as earlier reported that the National Common Entrance Examination, has been postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“NECO wishes to state categorically that apart from the 2020 National Common Entrance (NCEE) that was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the council has not reviewed any of its remaining examination time tables (BECE) and (SSCE), neither is it contemplating such for now,” the statement noted.
Sani added that NECO “is monitoring the prevailing situation in the country and will make official pronouncement on the examinations if the need arises.”
He urged students planning to sit for the examination to disregard any information that the two tests have been shifted.
