The National Examinations council (NECO) has recorded a remarkable improvement in its just released 2013 June-July senior school certificate Examinations.

Over 60 percent of the over a million candidates who sat for the examinations scored credit pass and above in the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology compared to fifteen percent in 2011 and 49 percent in 2012.

The new results also showed that only 10 percent of the candidates who sat for the Examination scored credit pass and above in both Christian religious studies and Islamic religious studies.

The Registrar of the council, Professor Promise Okpala while releasing the results at the council headquarters noted that there has been a reduction in malpractices as only one percent of the candidates were involved in any form of malpractices in the Examinations compared to 35 percent last year.
