The National Examination Council (NECO)
has warned candidates sitting for its
examinations against patronising people
who post requests online, asking them to
pay and get leaked answers.
According to NECO’s Abuja Liaison Officer,
Mr. Abdul Mustapha, such fraudsters are
just out to cheat unsuspecting candidates.
“They have no access to our answers; they
cannot get our answers; they will pretend as
if they have seen the answers but it is all
“Our questions appear in four types – types
A to D ; but what they present to unsuspecting candidates is just manufactured answers without the type
“Again, our questions stop at 50, but theirs
continue from 51 to 100; that is another
proof that they have not seen our answers.
“In one occasion, in our biology exam, the
specimen was an ear but they drew flower
in their own fake answers,” he said.
He said candidates are always shy from
reporting to NECO when they fell prey to
scammers, “knowing that they tried to cheat
but ended up being cheated.”
The 2015 NECO SSCE internal examination
which commenced on May 21 will end on
July 10. (NAN)
