#EndSARS: NECO postpones more exams

The National Examinations Council (NECO), has postponed more examinations following the security situation in the country, which is as a result of the attacks on #EndSARS protesters.

NECO had earlier rescheduled the Computer Studies Practical examination from October 19 to November 16.

The council in a statement on Tuesday, signed by Azeez Sani said it is being constrained by circumstances beyond its control, to reschedule the papers meant for Thursday 22 October 2020, Friday 23 October 2020 and Saturday 24 October 2020.

According to the statement, the affected papers are now scheduled for 17th, 18th and 19th November 2020, and the examination time table for the papers will be made available subsequently.

“These changes were due to the security challenges, which led to the imposition of curfew and closure of schools by some state governments, in order to safeguard lives and properties. In the circumstances , it has become difficult for the Council to move examination materials across the country.

“The Council prays that the Examinations will continue on Tuesday 27 October 2020,all things being equal, with the papers as originally scheduled in the examination time table.

“Any inconvenience caused is highly regretted”, the statement read.
