The National Examination Council (NECO) has uploaded the reviewed version of its External Senior School Certificate Examination timetable.
From the timetable, the Examination is set to begin on Monday, February 1st, 2020 with French Paper IV and Arabic Oral. The exam is scheduled to end on Wednesday, March 3rd, 2020.
The council has also announced its provisions for the candidates who missed some papers in the last Internal examination held amidst the #EndSARS protest.
According to the statement by the Registrar and Chief Executive of the council, Prof. Godswill Obioma, during the release of the 2020 Internal examination results.
The registrar disclosed that:
“the Council has made special arrangements for those candidates who missed some papers due to the ENDSARS Protests in those States. The affected candidates will now sit for those papers missed during the forthcoming 2020 SSCE (External) scheduled from Monday 1st February, 2021 to Wednesday 3rd March, 2021.”
This implies that candidates who sat for the internal exams that held in October 2020 and missed some papers due to the #EndSARS crisis are to join the external candidates to sit for the papers they missed.
Here is the complete schedule of the Examination as extracted from NECO official site.
