The National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) has announced the indefinite postponement of the Board’s 2020 May/June Ordinary Level Certificate Examinations.
Prof. Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe, Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of NABTEB, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday in Benin.
“The 2020 May/June series of the NABTEB Certificate Examinations, which are for in-school candidates, originally scheduled to begin on Monday, May, 4 2020, have now been postponed on account of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic ravaging the whole world.
“A new date will be announced in due course.
“Meanwhile, registration for the examinations continues.
“NABTEB enjoins candidates to continue to positively and productively engage in their studies through e-learning resources made available through radio, television and other safe means while they await further information from the Board,” she said.
In another news, the Management of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) said on Thursday that its registration portal would remain open in spite of the lockdown occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic until new entrants complete their admission procedures.
A statement issued on Thursday by Mr Ibrahim Sheme, Director of Media and Publicity, NOUN, stated that the university’s portal remained open contrary to reports in the social media that it had been shut.
Sheme said the negative reports peddled by some “idle minds” had hampered efforts by students and candidates to complete their registration.
