National Examination Council (NECO) Timetable for 2020 (SSCE)

At last, the national examination council (NECO) timetable for 2020 is out and official. I am sure we all know that this exam was to hold in mid-2020.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this exam had to be postponed to late this year. Since then the exam has been postponed from one month to another.

There is good news today as the governing board of the national examination council (NECO) during a special meeting, reviewed the ongoing SSCE nationwide.

Before this special meeting, the board in a press release announced that some papers would be scheduled. With this being said, if you have a previous timetable before the 21st of October, it is likely outdated.

From access on the board, this board resolved that the SSCE be postponed indefinitely due to the recent #ENDSARS protest as it is believed to create some security issues.

National Examination Council Timetable for 2020

After much deliberation, the national examination council timetable for 2020 is officially out. Due to the protest, most of the states if not all had to impose a curfew and shut all schools down.

Aside from that, there were also other security issues such as the difficulty to move the examination materials across the country.
