“The Council hereby informs those candidates, who missed some papers during the 2020 SSCE (Internal) due to the ENDSARS protests in some states, to take note of these new dates and report for the examination accordingly at their various examination centers to be designated”.
Mr Sani advised all candidates to access the revised Examination Time Table on the Council’s website: www.neco.gov.ng.
