The 2020 National Common Entrance Examination has been postponed indefinitely by the National Examinations Council over the COVID-19 pandemic.
The council announced the postponement on Tuesday, saying the decision was in line with the various measures being put in place by the federal and state governments to curtail the potential spread of the disease in the country.
NECO also appealed to candidates, guardians and relevant stakeholders who were preparing for the examination earlier scheduled for March 28, to wait for a new date.
The council stated this in a statement by its Head of Information and Public Relations, Mr Azeez Sani.
“The National Examinations Council wishes to inform all candidates, guardians and relevant stakeholders of the indefinite postponement of the 2020 NCEE into Federal Unity Colleges earlier scheduled to hold on Saturday, March 28.
“The management of NECO regrets any inconveniences the postponement might have caused candidates and other stakeholders. A new date for the examination will be communicated to candidates and other stakeholders in due course.
“Meanwhile, registration for the examination continues”, the statement read.
