Following the release of its November/December 2018 results, the National Examinations Council (NECO) Friday announced tokens will now be used by candidates to access their online results.
The Acting Registrar of NECO, Abubakar Gana, has said that, unlike what obtained in the past where result checker cards were used, the exam body has switched to using tokens.
Speaking in Abuja on Friday as he announced the release of the 2018 Nov/Dec SSCE NECO results, Gana said that result checker cards would no longer be valid for checking of results.
Rather, he said, candidates are expected to purchase a token, with which they would access their results online.
According to the information released via the examination body’s web site, https://result.neco.gov.ng/ candidates are advised to check their results online by taking the following steps:
Enter your token
Enter your examination number
Click on the “Check my result” button
According to Gana, 59,963 candidates registered for the examination and were examined in about 28 subject areas.
He noted that a total of 37,069 candidates representing 62.48 per cent got five credits and above including English and Mathematics, while 47,031 candidates, representing 79.27 per cent got five credits and above, irrespective of English and Mathematics.
While giving further breakdown of the performance of candidates, he said that 57,842 sat for English Language out of which 44,497, representing 76.93 got either distinction or credit.
He added that 57,275 sat for Mathematics, out of which 47,151 representing 82.32 per cent got either distinction or credit.
“A comparative analysis of candidates, who scored five credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics for 2017 and 2018 shows 56.79 per cent for 2017 and 62.48 per cent for 2018.
“This represents an increase of 5.69 per cent,” he said.
