Another mass failure has been recorded in the November/December Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE).
While releasing the results at the council headquarters in Minna, Niger state on Wednesday, the registrar to the examination body, Professor Promise Okpala, made these announcement.
The 2011 result that was just released by the council revealed that 10 percent of the 110,724 candidates that sat for the examinations scored credit and above in core subjects like English language, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Geography.
Okpala said: compared to last year’s result, which recorded only 17 percent success in Mathematics. There was improvement in Mathematics this year as 41 percent of the students scored credit, pass and above.
“It is troubling that at a time when the nation is facing decay in its moral standard with the rise of militancy, despite religious dedication, only 5 percent scored credit, pass and above in Islamic studies while less than one percent scored credit pass and above in Christian religious studies,” he said.
