NECO Reschedules Monday Exam Over #ENDSARS Protests

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has rescheduled Computer Studies Practical examination from Monday, October 19 to November 16. The postponement was caused by the #EndSARS protest.

NECO Reschedules exam

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, 10am to 1pm, for Monday 16 November 2020, 10am-1pm.


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 on Friday 16 October 2020, earlier to deliver examination materials to some states and has been held up in the blockage since then.

The Council wishes to assure all stakeholders and the general public that the affected examination materials have been retrieved and are intact.

While regretting any inconveniences this rescheduling may cause our esteemed stakeholders, the Council has however taken this decision in order to maintain the integrity and security of its examinations procedures for seamless conduct of the Council’s examination.

Thank you.
