The National Examinations Council (NECO) has set a new date for the 2020 Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSSCE) for external candidates.
The Council said the new date followed candidates' requests to have more additional time to accomplish their registration for the examination.
Based on NECO, the examination, which has been earlier scheduled to start on Monday, February 1, 2021, and ends on Wednesday, March 3, 2021, will begin Monday, February 8, 2021, and end on Wednesday, March 10, 2021.
Azeez Sani NECO spokesperson reported this in a statement yesterday.
The statement reads: “The Council herewith informs those candidates, who missed some papers during the 2020 SSCE (Internal) because of the #EndSARS protests in certain states, to observe these new dates and report for the examination accordingly at their different examination centers to be designated.”
The statement advised the candidate to access the revised examination timetable on the Council's website: www.neco.gov.ng.
