LearnAfrica Plc (former Longman Plc) has congratulated the candidates of the 2013 June/July National Examinations Council  (NECO) SSCE and the council itself for the significant improvement of performances and reduction in examination malpractices.

Results released recently by NECO indicated that about 70 per cent of candidates obtained five credits and above – an improvement  of about 18 percent compared to the 2012 figure of about 52 per cent.

In a press release which was signed by the Head of Marketing, LearnAfrica Plc, Mr Allwell Nwakwo, and made available to newsmen on Wednesday, the company attributed the improved outcomes to quality teaching by teachers, hard work by students, availability of quality resources and seamless organisation by the examination body.

“We have no doubt that there is still room for improvement. That is why we are investing in motivating Nigerian students through the LearnAfrica-NECO Excellence Awards and other initiatives of our foundation.”

It will be recalled that in 2012, the corporate social responsibility arm of the company, the LearnAfrica Education Development Foundation, instituted the Excellence Awards to recognise and reward outstanding NECO candidates, schools and teachers in all states of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory.
