The National Examination Council (NECO) has postponed Paper I Computer Studies Practicals scheduled for Monday, 19th October, 2020, until 16th November.

This was contained in a statement by the NECO Head, Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani, on Sunday.

Sani said the decision was taken because of the ongoing #ENDSARS protests, affecting the human and vehicular movement.

He explained that the protest had affected the supply of examination materials.

The statement reads, “This is to inform the general public and especially candidates that the National Examinations Council (NECO) has been constrained to reschedule the Paper I Computer Studies Practical’s earlier scheduled to take place on Monday 19 October 2020, 10 am to 1 pm. The examination of this paper will now hold on Monday 16 November 2020, 10 am-1 pm.

​”This unforeseen incident has been caused by the ENDSARS protest that blocked the free movement of transport at the City entrance gate Benin.

“The NECO delivery truck had left its take-off point well in advance two days earlier to deliver examination materials to some states and has been held up in the blockage since then.
