The National Examinations Council (NECO) has announced a new date for the 2020 SSCE External examinations.
The examinations, which were previously scheduled to commence on February 1 and end on March 3, will now start on February 8 and end on March 10.
NECO made this known in a press statement signed by its spokesperson, Azeez Sanni, on Tuesday.
“Following requests by candidates to be given more time to complete their registration process for the 2020 SSCE (External), the National Examinations Council (NECO) has fixed new dates for the examination,” the statement said.
The Council said it made special arrangements for those candidates who missed some papers due to the #EndSARS protests in certain states to take those exams with the External candidates.
