Many students currently writing the Senior Secondary
Certificate Examination (SSCE) of the National Examinations
Commission (NECO) had to chew the cover of their pens
today as the examination body surprised them with upgraded
means of conducting the exams. One of the rescheduled
subjects-Mathematics-was written today and those who wrote
said they did not understand how the exam was conducted.
One of such means was the use of Paper Type. This medium
which must have been adopted from that of the Joint
Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) was the one that
hit students, especially the ones that wrote in “Miracle
Centres” the hardest.
A student of High Standard Comprehensive High School, In
Delta State complained bitterly to me after their exams. “Na
God go punish NECO.”, he cried. “When they brought the
question papers, our maths teacher just collect one question
paper go dey solve am for us inside him office. After like
thirty minutes, the guy come inside hall.
he dictate objective,
all of us shade. Later dem come copy theory for board, all of
us copy am take. Na about ten minutes make exam finish Na
we come dey hear say one thing Na paper type. before we
know d invigilator collect everything from us. The Paper
Type wey d mumu Uncle write Na C and me I be type A”.
Many students were found complaining, crying and some
even rolling on the floor.
Most of the ones crying were heard making d statement
“NECO, Diaris God ooooooo”.
This shows the reason for the rescheduling of three core
subjects; mathematics, biology and economics.
