The National Examination Council (NECO) has said that it will soon release the results of the Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSSCE) conducted nationwide last July.
The Head of Information and Public Affairs of the organization, Alhaji Azeez Sani, told THISDAY in a telephone interview in Minna Monday that marking and collation of the results have been completed.
Sani said: “We have completed the marking and collation of the results. Very soon, we will release the results.”
He did not say what is responsible for the delay in the release of the results, but allayed the fears of candidates that their aspirations would be met soon.
It was the practice of NECO over the years to release the results of its examination not more than 90 days after the writing of the last paper.
Over 1,200 candidates sat for the examination with each paying not less than N9,500 for writing the tests.
