The National Business and Technical Examination Board (NABTEB) has released results of the 2016 May/June National Business Certificate (NBC) and National Technical Certificate (NTC) examinations held nationwide between May 2 and and June 3, 2016.
Registrar and chief executive officer of NABTEB, Prof. (Mrs) Ifeoma Mercy Isuigo-Abanihe, who announced the release of the results at a media briefing held at NABTEB’s headquarters in Benin, said 38,280 out of 69,472 candidates, who enrolled for the examinations made five credit including English Language and Mathematics.
Further breakdown of the examinations showed that candidates enrolled for 15 engineering trades, seven construction trades, nine miscellaneous trades and 16 general education trades.
Prof (Mrs) Isuigo-Abanihe also disclosed that 54,485 of candidates, representing 79.61 per cent of those examined, recorded five credit and above with or without English Language and Mathematics,
She noted that 2,273, representing 3.32 per cent were involved in cases of examination malpractices, noting that NABTEB was looking at prosecuting those involved apart from withholding their results.
The NABTEB registrar, however, noted with dismay continued drop in the enrollment of NABTEB examinations, remarking that NABTEB was working with relevant institutions in order to come up with a policy on technical education and improve student enrollment.
