The National Examinations Council (NECO) released its 2020 Senior Secondary School Examination (SSCE) results on Wednesday, January 13.
The Nation reports that the examination body said there is a 2% increase of candidates who made five credits and above in all subjects when compared with that of last year.
The candidates who sat for the exam are advised to get the result checking token from the NECO website.

4. Enter your Token Number and registration number in the appropriate columns.
5. Finally, click on the check result button to access your NECO result.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that while giving the announcement at the council's headquarters in Niger state capital, Minna, the NECO registrar, Professor Godswill Obioma, revealed that the 2020 result was better than that of 2019.
Obioma disclosed that NECO has derecognised 12 schools for malpractice and massive cheating during the conduct of the examination.
He further revealed that the affected schools are in states like Adamawa, Kaduna, Kastina, Niger, Taraba, and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
In a related report, NECO had said some papers that were missing during the just concluded exams would hold in February 2021.
Some NECO papers were postponed amid the EndSARS protests as students in Lagos, Bayelsa, Rivers, and Edo, among other states, were reportedly prevented from writing their exams.
According to the report, the missed papers including Chemistry Paper 1, Commerce paper II and III, Economics and Technical drawing would be taken by candidates during the SSCE to be held between February 1 and March 3, 2021.
While parents condemned the postponement of the papers, some educational professionals noted that the decision would have both negative and psychological effects on the candidates.
