NABTEB releases 2020 November/December exams results

The National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) has released the 2020 November/December examination results.
The Registrar of the board, Prof.  Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe, disclosed this in Benin, Edo State capital, on Monday.
She said out of the 32,336 candidates that sat for the NBC/NTC examinations, 21,175 scored five credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics, which represents 75.772 per cent of the candidates
She said  examination malpractice was reduced drastically this year due to the quality assurance mechanisms put in place by the board, adding that 250 candidates were found  be involved in the malpractice compared to 603 recorded last year.
She said a total of 32,541 candidates registered for the examination in 1,583 centres.
Prof. Isiugo- Abanihe said as a result of the dearth of quality manpower in the country, the board set up Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to equip the youth with relevant skills needed for the labour market.
She identified inadequate state-owned  technical schools, shortage of technical teachers, lack of technical manpower, equipment and materials for effective practical activities and training, funding, among others, as the challenges confronting the board.
While calling on Nigerians to increase enrolment of candidates for the NATEB examination, she said he the board was prepared to collaborate with public and private training institutions that engage in training on technical, vocational or entrepreneurial skills.
