Another mass failure has been recorded by students across the country in the just announced 2011 June/July Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) results.



Registrar, Chief Executive of the Council, (NECO) while announcing the results in Minna Friday, exonerated the Council from  the poor outing of students nationwide, adding that structures that ensured that appropriate standards of excellence and transparency were maintained before, during and after the examinations were put in place.

A breakdown of the results shows that out of the 1,190,393 that registered for the English language, 1,160,049 actually sat for the examinations while only 2,119 or 0.18% came out with Distinction and 263,777 or 22.16% came out with Credit pass, 76,224 or 6.40% failed while there 51,312 malpractice or 4.31% was recorded.


In Mathematics, 1,190,365 registered for the subject while 1,156,561 sat for it with only 3,356 or 0.28% obtaining Distinction and 295,961 or 24.86% with credit, 7, 7,395 or 60.27% pass, 89,023 or 7.48% failed while 50,826 or 4.27% malpractice was recorded.

Core subjects like Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Further Mathematics also recorded mass failure with high degrees of malpractices also recorded.

Answering questions from Journalists on the continous mass failure in external examinations, Registrar/Chief Executive of the Council, Professor Promise M. Okpala attributed the continous mass failure to a lot of variables which he said include the learners (Students) themselves, the various schools across the country, parents and even the society.

He said while the Federal government and some states have already taken bold steps to improve on the educational standard, all stakeholders will have to be patient before reaping the good results adding that “the high expectations cannot be achieved  immediately because change in the behavioral pattern of the children take time”.

Professor Okpala identified quality teaching on the part of teachers and intensive learning by the students concerned as the only way out if the dwindling academics and poor results in the country have to be drastically reduced.

On whether the Council has an approved syllabus for its candidates and whether schools are being monitored in strict compliance with the approved syllabus, the Registrar said, “in as much as NECO has an approved and standard syllabus, strict compliance with it rest sorely in the hands of each school to ensure that the syllabus are met in terms of teaching.”

According to him,” it cannot be proper for any external examiner to go into schools to analyse how they are teaching their students and for the same examiner to oversee the markings of answer sheets of such students.”

Okpala emphasized on the markings of examination scripts of students saying, “we embark on centralized marking and those engaged in our markings are qualified teachers who teach in various secondary schools across the country and I want to assure you that we don’t award marks randomly but according to ability and capability of each student.

A total of 1,190,393 candidates registered for the examination out of while 1,160561 actually sat for the examination.

This result is very depressing, We'll probably have a better result if NECO lowers the
quality of it's exams to elementary 6 level.

How will they ever pass their exams, most especially the ladies when they are busy thinking about sugar daddy and guys with money who can buy them blackberry phones and short dresses. As for the guys, instead of them to read their books, they all believe they have talent in music. They all want to be like 2face, MI and Wizkid....WTF is wrong with Young African Nigerians.. They all need counseling. Oshi nle pako.

You forgot to extend your thanks to poor learning condition, poor background on the side of the students; and the worst of all, UNQUALIFIED TEACHERS.
