The council’s registrar, Godswill Obioma, declared this on Wednesday in Minna, the capital of Niger State.

This is also a defining moment for the Council, considering the difficult circumstances under which the evaluations were carried out in 2020 last year. Indeed, we are grateful to God Almighty for making this opportunity possible,’ he said.

Under the Council’s mandate to conduct credible examinations to improve the overall quality of education in the country, the different stages of our examinations, from the pre-examination stage to the post-examination stage, have continuously improved. It is gratifying to note that these processes for the 2020 SSCE (Internal) have been concluded, culminating in releasing results.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the EndSARS protest were a challenge for Mr. Obioma to carry out the examination.

You will recall that the first case of Covid-19 in Nigeria was reported in Ogun State in February 2020, and a new standard in the scheme of things has since been introduced. This new norm has changed not only our way of life but has also affected our activity schedule. For example, our 2020 SSCE (I) was written between 28 May 2020 and 10 July 2020.

However, the examination was rescheduled to take place from Monday 5 October 2020 to Wednesday 18 November 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the END SARS protests erupted across some states in the country barely two weeks after the beginning of the exams, leading to the implementation of curfews and schools’ closure by some State Governments to safeguard lives property, truncating the examination process once again.

For those papers missed during the upcoming 2020 SSCE (External) scheduled from Monday 1 February 2021 to Wednesday 3 March 2021, the affected candidates will now sit.

“These special arrangements will be available to these candidates at no additional cost,” Mr. Obioma added.

Once the internal results of the 2020 SSCE are published, those of the affected candidates will remain pending for the missing papers. They will eventually be revised after the results of the additional review are published.
