“A total of 33,965 candidates sat for the Ordinary level certificate examinations and 4,674 candidates sat for Advanced level. Similarly, out of 6,462 candidates that sat for various Trades at all levels, 3,352 candidates, representing 57.87/% were certified as craftsmen.

“For the advanced Level examinations, 1,871 candidates, representing 40.02% of the 4,674 candidates that sat for various Trades at Master Craft level were certified as Master Craftsmen.

The result statistics represent a slight decrease in performance over those of 2020 November/December certificate examinations,” she said

Isiugo-Abanihe noted that the Board has had to cope with stigmatization against Technical and Vocational Educational Training (TVET) by members of the public; inadequate funding of TVET programs and institutions such as NABTEB and gross imbalance between a number of Technical Colleges and conventional secondary schools, which according to her, leads to low enrollment.

She also used the opportunity to inform the general public that the registration of candidates for the 2022 NABTEB NBC/NTC examinations for in-school candidates has commenced.
