The National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) on Wednesday said it has succeeded in the conduct of its first examination in a foreign country.
It said the examination was held in Cote d’Ivoire.
The Registrar and Chief Executive of NABTEB, Dr. Olatunde Aworanti, disclosed this while announcing the release of the 2014 May/June National Business Certificate and National Technical Certificate examination results.
Dr. Aworanti, who lamented low enrollment of its examination in Nigeria said 29,129 candidates representing 37.64 per cent scored five credits and above including English Language and Mathematics while 46,412 representing 58.38 per cent have five credits with or without English Language and Mathematics.
The NABTEB boss said the board recorded 1,952 cases of examination malpractice against 5,108 malpractice cases recorded in 2013.
He said malpractice cases were low in 2014 because of introduction of e-learning packages for candidates, intensive monitoring and use of biometric data capturing system.
Dr. Aworanti called for implementation of new basic curriculum involving vocational activities if the nation’s quest for rapid technological development would be achieved.
