COVID-19: NABTEB postpones 2020 exams indefinitely

The National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) has indefinitely postponed the 2020 May/June Ordinary Level Certificate Examinations, in view of the ravaging Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).

The postponement announcement was made on Thursday by NABTEB’s Registrar/Chief Executive Officer, Prof. Ifeoma Isiugo-Abanihe.

She said: “The 2020 May/June series of the NABTEB certificate examinations, which are for in-school candidates, originally scheduled to begin on May 4, 2020 have been postponed indefinitely, on account of the 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 and television and other safe means, while they await further information from the board.”

It will be recalled that the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and the National Examinations Council (NECO) have also postponed their May/June examinations.
