The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced that its 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) in all states and the FCT will commence from Monday November 9, 2020.

In a statement signed by its Head of Media and Public Relations, Azeez Sani, the Council said it was constrained to postpone the examinations indefinitely on Monday, October 25, 2020 due to security challenges occasioned by the EndSARS protest, which disrupted the smooth conduct of the examinations in some parts of the country.

It said following the return of normalcy in the states and FCT, the examinations will now continue with a new timetable from Monday November 9, 2020 to Saturday November 28, 2020.

According to the statement, “NECO wishes to inform candidates, schools and other stakeholders of the resumption of the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) in all states and the FCT from Monday 9th November 2020.

“The Council was constrained to postpone the examinations indefinitely on Monday 25th October 2020 due to security challenges occasioned by the ENDSARS protests, which disrupted the smooth conduct of the examinations in some parts of the country.
