NABTEB Releases 2023 Results, Decries Malpractices

The examinations, from June 26th to July 25th, 2023, witnessed significant success, with 49,529 candidates achieving five credits and above, regardless of whether they included English Language and Mathematics.

This impressive feat amounts to 92.43% of the total number of candidates who undertook the examinations.

Notably, this performance surpasses the 2022 In-school NBC/NTC examinations, where 58,679 candidates (69.73%) secured five credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics.

Out of the 74,346 candidates who partook in the examinations, 88.35% obtained five credits and above, irrespective of their English Language and Mathematics results.

In contrast to the previous year, the 2023 examinations recorded a decrease in the number of registered candidates.

A total of 54,301 candidates registered for the examinations, conducted in 1,556 centres across Nigeria and Cote d’Ivoire.

This number represents a 38.06% decrease compared to the 2022 In-school certificate examinations, where 87,668 candidates enrolled.

The breakdown of the examinations revealed that candidates registered for 16 Engineering Trades, seven Construction Trades, nine Miscellaneous Trades, four Business Trades, and 17 General Education subjects.

While the performance of candidates is undoubtedly commendable, the NABTEB Registrar, Prof. Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe, expressed concerns over the issue of examination malpractice.

She noted that examination malpractice continues to be a global challenge in the realm of public examinations, gaining international attention within the assessment discourse.

During the 2023 NBC/NTC examinations, 239 candidates, representing 0.45% of the total number of participants, were involved in examination malpractice.

This figure marked an increase from the 2022 In-school examinations, where 300 candidates (0.36%) were implicated in malpractice.

The NABTEB board is committed to addressing this issue and is actively exploring innovative approaches to minimize malpractice and ensure the integrity of the examinations.
