The improvement recorded in the 2013 National Examination Council (NECO) results followed the collective efforts of the Federal Government and stakeholders, the NECO Registrar, Professor Promise Okpala, said.
It would be recalled that NECO, on Thursday, released the 2013 June/July Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE) with about 70 per cent of the candidates passing both English Language and Mathematics.
No fewer than 69.57 per cent of the candidates that sat for the examinations made at least five credits to qualify them for admission into tertiary institutions.
Okpala told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja that it was the concerted efforts of President Goodluck Jonathan, the ministers of education, the National Assembly, commissioners of education, parents and teachers that yielded the improved results.
