(ii) The number of candidates that sat is 59,124 with 31,316 (52.96%) male and 27,808 (47.03%) female.

(iii) The number of candidates that sat for English Language is 58,012 out of which 44,162, representing 76.13% got Credit and above.

(iv) The number of candidates that sat for Mathematics is 57,700, out of which 43,096, representing 74.69% got Credit and above.

(vii) The number of candidates booked for various forms of malpractice is 11,419, as against 4,454 in 2021, which shows a sharp rise in the number of malpractice cases. This is largely due to the improvement in the strategy and technique adopted by the monitoring officers. This led to the blacklisting of four (4) supervisors, one (1) each from Rivers and Plateau States and two (2) from Ogun State for aiding and abetting as well as poor supervision.
The detailed analysis of these results and others can be found in the Appendices attached.
7.0 Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, at this point, it is my pleasure to declare the 2022 SSCE External results released. Candidates can access their results on the NECO official website, using their examination registration number.
Thank you all.
