The National Examinations Council (NECO) has introduced a portal for the verification and confirmation of Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (SSCE) results.
Ibrahim Wushishi, the registrar and chief executive of the council, unveiled the portal named ‘NECOe-Verify’ on Thursday.
Wushishi said the initiative became imperative due to the limitations associated with the manual process of confirming and verifying results.
“Due to the growing need for verification and confirmation of results by institutions both home and abroad, the council decided that now was the best time to introduce the e-Verify platform,” he said.
The ‘NECO e-Verify’ is an Online Result Verification solution that guarantees instant authentication of academic and basic information about prospective candidates for admission and employment into academic institutions and work places respectively.”
The NECO registrar said result verification is crucial as it improves the efficiency, and confidence of employers, and reduces risk.
“Result verification is an important process that helps to ensure the accuracy of academic credentials. By verifying the authenticity of candidates’ results, academic institutions and employers will be more confident that they are admitting and hiring persons who have the required qualification for further studies and specific job schedules,” he added.
“It is against this backdrop that the National Examinations Council, as part of its efforts in meeting with global standards, has found it necessary to deploy cutting-edge technology to improve candidates’ experiences as they seek to advance their educational pursuit.
