The National Business and Technical Examinations Board on Thursday announced that, it has release the provisional results of candidates who took part in the 2014 November/December National Business Certificate/National Technical Certificate and the Advanced National Business Certificate/Advanced National Technical Certificate examinations.
A statement signed by the Registrar and Chief Executive body of NABTEB, Dr. Olatunde Aworanti, who announced this at the board’s headquarters in Benin, Edo State on Thursday, said that 45,725 candidates scored five credits and above in English Language and Mathematics.
This, he said, represented 67.01 per cent improvement in the NBC/NTC examinations, as against the 36.64 per cent recorded in the 2014 May/June examinations.
Aworanti explained that 77,588 candidates enrolled for the examinations which was held in 1,951 centres nationwide.
He said that out of the figure, 70,014 persons registered for the Ordinary Crafts Level while 7,574 candidates enrolled for the Master Crafts Level.
He also disclosed that the board had certified a total of 18,926 craftsmen in various trades under the Ordinary and Advanced Levels cadres.
The registrar, however, noted that the rate of enrolment was still below expectation, in view of the nation’s quest for rapid technological development as well as the vital role of technical education in the country.
He, therefore, called for favourable policies that would enhance increased participation in NABTEB programmes in the country.
“Both the National Assembly and state Houses of Assembly should legislate on the establishment of more modern and well-equipped technical colleges in all local government areas in the country,” he added.
