The National Examinations Council has debunked rumours that the council has postponed the 2020 Senior School Certificate Examination and Basic Education Certificate Examination due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The council stated this in a statement issued by its Head of Information, Mr Azeez Sani, where he noted that the council though cancelled the 2020 common entrance examination, are still studying the situation in the country.
“We state categorically that apart from the 2020 National Common Entrance that was postponed indefinitely due to the outbreak of Covid-19, the council has not reviewed any of its remaining examination timetables for BECE and SSCE, neither is it contemplating such for now”.
“The general public is urged to disregard such fake news, as the council is monitoring the prevailing situation in the country and will make an official pronouncement on the examinations if the need arise”, he added.
The council said they are keeping watch over the prevailing situation in the country and would postpone the exams if there was any need for that.
