The Federal Government has announced the cancellation of the second interview test conducted by the National Examination Council (NECO) for admission into unity schools with effect from the 2017/2018 academic year.
The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, in a statement signed by the Deputy Director in charge of Press in the Ministry, Bem Goong, stated that the second test is an unnecessary additional financial burden on parents /guardians.
According to the minister, the era of multiple examinations attracting prohibitive fees cannot be accommodated by the Buhari administration, especially against the backdrop of government's determination to increase access to education as a platform for breaking the cycle of poverty.
He therefore directed the National Examinations Council (NECO) to strengthen its examination processes with a view to achieving a quality and credible National Common Entrance Examination (NCEE) for admission into unity schools at the first test.
Adamu said his administration is working towards strengthening the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the National Examinations Council (NECO) which have been established by Acts of the National Assembly and charged with the responsibility of conducting admission into Federal Public secondary and tertiary schools respectively to deliver efficiently on their mandates.
He also explained that the 2017/2018 effective date for the cancellation of the second NECO test is informed by the fact that this year’s exercise had already been concluded.
