The Registrar/Chief Executive of the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB), Prof. (Mrs.) Ifeoma Mercy Isiugo-Abanihe, on Tuesday, 27th February, 2018, officially announced the release of the results of the November/December 2017 National Business Certificate (NBC), National Technical Certificate (NTC), Advanced National Business Certificate (ANBC), and the Advanced National Technical Certificate (ANTC) examinations, at the NABTEB national headquarters in Benin City. In a speech at a well attended press conference, she noted that there is a slow, relatively low, but promising and significant rise in the number and performance of certified Craftsmen and Master Craftsmen, as well as a rising interest in vocational skills acquisition in Nigeria, which she linked to the rise in demand for skills in the world today. She also expressed delight at the brilliant success of candidates in both compulsory and elective General Education subjects.
NABTEB, being the main awarding body that is saddled with the responsibility for assessment of technical and vocational education at the post basic education level, conducted the examinations nationwide from Monday, 6th November to Friday, 8th December, 2017. A total of 45,088 candidates enrolled for the examinations in 1,786 centres nationwide. 40,746 candidates registered for the Ordinary Craft level, while 4,342 registered for Master Craft level certificate. However, only 44,197 candidates sat for the examinations, comprising 40,117 NBC/NTC and 4,080 ANBC/ANTC candidates, representing 98.02% of the total enrolment.
Analysis of the results reveals that 21,159 candidates representing 52.74% of candidates that sat for the NBC/NTC examinations, obtained five (5) credits and above including English Language and Mathematics; whereas, 31,369 candidates representing 78.19% scored five (5) credits and above with or without English Language and Mathematics. This represents an improved performance compared to the previous year’s (2016) November/December NBC/NTC results, where 47.48% of the candidates obtained five credits and above in subjects that included English and Mathematics; and 73.77% scored five credits and above with or without English and Mathematics.
In collaboration with all well-meaning citizens of our great country, Nigeria, and beyond, NABTEB will continue to intensify its efforts to promote sustainable technical development through high quality assessment and certification in technical and vocational education.
