Confusion over NECO transferring lost documents in 2021

Confusion over NECO transferring lost documents in 2021

It was a major confusion that gripped school owners, parents and students on Tuesday after the National Examination Board made a new paper shortage announcement.

NECO said the documents lost during the just-concluded NECO exams will be held in February 2021.

NECO Chancellor Mr. Godsville Obioma said on Tuesday that the documents will be accepted during the matriculation exam, which will take place from February 1 to March 3, 2021.

Some of the documents include Chemical Document 1, Commercial Document II and III, Economic and Technical Drawing.

Students in Lagos, Bayels, Rivers and Edo, in particular, would not be allowed to collect their papers due to protests from EndSARS.

The declaration partially states: “The National Examination Board leadership has kindly approved that Chemistry Exam I and Commercial Papers II and III, delayed as a result of EndSARS protests, will be accepted during the High School Certificate Exam (external SSCE), which will take place between February 1 and March 3, 2021. Applicants with any specific challenges related to Economics II and III and Engineering Design I should take advantage of this opportunity. “

But the president of Lagos State, the National Association of Private School Owners, Olavale Amusa, said such a development would have both negative and psychological consequences for candidates, adding that it was not a very good decision by the board.

He said: “It will affect children who rely on this result for admission. Many universities have started the admission process and some of them are in need of it. Moving the board over to next year will have a big impact on children. This will affect the reception processing. This will affect them psychologically. “

Likewise, one of the parents, who called themselves simply Mrs. Thade, said that she would not allow her daughter to sit with the remaining papers.

“It was a pointless decision on the part of NECO; Why postpone the exam until February? I will not let my daughter take the exam again, it is useless. “ she said.

One school owner, who did not want to be named, also complained about the long delay, stating that the results could not be used for admission to the 2020 exam.

Attempts to contact NECO’s head of public relations, Aziz Sunny, and NECO government official in Lagos, Saad Ibrahim, were unsuccessful as they called their cell phones and still had to rely on test messages sent to them.
