Examination Malpractice: NECO probes Kaduna centre, reiterates commitment to zero tolerance


The Authorities of Signature Television had recently alerted the National Examinations Council (NECO) of some infractions at one of the examination centers, Fabian Kings and Queens International School, Kabala West, Kaduna with Centre Number (0140721) that may lead to malpractice during the just concluded 2020 SSCE (Internal). 

Based on the Council’s zero tolerance for examination malpractice, it swung swiftly into action by: flagging the centre, identifying and isolating all the candidates’ scripts for scrutiny.  Following this action, the Council constituted an Administrative Committee to investigate the allegation in order to enable the Council take appropriate actions.

If found culpable, the entire results of the candidates will be cancelled, the school will be derecognized and those examination officials involved in the act will be prosecuted in accordance with the Examination Malpractice Decree 33 of 1999.

The Council wishes to commend the authorities of Signature Television for their interest in ensuring the sanctity of public examination and enjoins stakeholders to emulate this gesture.
